Request for l10n CVS access for en-GB localisation

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Attached file ssh key
form FAXed.
Ever confirmed: true
Zip contains translated files from 

ready (I hope ;) for CVS insertion.
Line endings are \n
Requesting blocking-aviary1.0 (as there is no blocking-aviary1.0-L10N for this
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0?
This looks great. Initial files committed, and I vouch.
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0?
Whiteboard: voucher, sshkey
marcia, did that fax make it to you?
fax and hard copy received.
I believe all of you now have access, if you could please confirm so I can close
out these bugs.
Bother - I get this:

C:\stuff\Firefox\lsrc>cvs version
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.17 (client)
Server: Server refused our key
No supported authentication methods left to try!
cvs [version aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)


This is using cvs 1.11.17 on win 2K (from (also tried 1.11.5, which
was doing anon connections fine),
and plink 0.56 (part of PuTTY); key pair was generated with PuTTYgen.

Necessary environment variables:

plink is in my path, and the 'mozilla' in CVSROOT is the sessionname with the
connection settings that plink uses (plink's help includes instructions on how
to use it with cvs, which I'm following here):
  port: 22
  protocol: SSH
  auto-login username:
  preferred ssh protocol version: 2
and the private key is the correct one.

Mark, the main cvs server is, not
cvs-mirror only does anonymous readonly connections.
Right, I changed that, and still no luck.  AFAICT I'm not getting past the
user/pass challenge.  I tried with cvs/plink (as above) and then just trying to
log in using PuTTY 0.56; I also tried using the ssh client in OpenSSH
(OpenSSH_3.8.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7d 17 Mar 2004).  The output from that gives

PuTTY fails to log in in the same way (but its log file was much more verbose).
