So, I'm requesting that my cvs account be changed from nelsonb@netscape.com
to my current email address: nelson@bolyard.com

Please advise me concerning what, if any, changes I must make to my cvs 
and/or ssh configuration to accomodate this.  Thanks.

This change has been made in despot. Over to server-ops for final piece. Does he need a new SSH key as well?

I hope my SSH key need not change, but please advise if it must.

My account is now in a strange state.  

As far as ssh is concerned, my account name is still nelsonb@netscape.com.
I can login with ssh with the old nelsonb@netscape, (More exactly, with 
nelsonb%netscape.com@cvs.mozilla.org) but not with the new nelson@bolyard
(that is, nelson%bolyard.com@cvs.mozilla.org).

But the checkin access controls for /mozilla/security have been changed
from my @netscape to my newer @bolyard.  Consequently, I cannot checkin 
to the security trunk!  

Please change it so that I can ssh login and cvs commit using the name
nelson%bolyard.com@cvs.mozilla.org  (I hope that's not confusing)
I'm not able to continue to develop NSS until this is fixed.

That's because Marcia's half has been done and ours (server ops) hasn't yet. :)

Please do the same thing for my account on cvs-www.mozilla.org
I'd like my same ssh key to work on that server, too.
I haven't used that account since we started using ssh.
using the web interface, I tried nelsonb%netscape.com and 
nelson%bolyard.com and it said it didn't recognize either user name.    
Maybe the account was deactivated?  
or maybe I just don't remember my user name for that account.

According to despot, you haven't been granted access to cvs-www, and I can't find a bug in Bugzilla requesting it.

Thanks, Dave.  It's been a long time since I worked on docs.  
It must be that others were doing the checkins for me. 
I'll apply for an account there.
