I've been cooking up a couple patches for the past several months (bz 333078 and 348789) and at least the latter is nearly ready to land (given the appropriate r+ and sr+ votes, etc.) However, I haven't gotten around to acquiring CVS write access yet. I'm not sure what the appropriate technique is. I can send an SSH public key.. is that enough? Do I need someone else to vouch for me?
Moving to CVS account request.
Bug 348789 doesn't seem to the bug you meant.
Need someone to vouch, as well as some SRs to chime in.
I will vouch! /be
I sr with glee.
brendan/shaver: should someone outside of mozilla.com add their sr approval or is this good to go?
Perhaps roc and dbaron would sr+? /be
I haven't really looked at anything of Graydon's.
Graydon meant bug 333078 and bug 348798. In general, our policy has been that we don't give out CVS write access until somebody has written enough *checked in* (by others) patches to show the things mentioned in http://www.mozilla.org/hacking/getting-cvs-write-access.html . While I have a high opinion of graydon's work, I don't see a strong need to make an exception to that policy here, and it would be somewhat hypocritical of me to sr *at this time* given that I'm pushing others towards making our CVS access policies more restrictive.

Fair enough. This is an aspect of being an outsider hired into the project that we all forsaw, and I take no offense at it. I will continue to update the patches I have in bugzilla. In the meantime I have faxed in my form and attached my key. Presumably they can be kept on file until needed.
Fax form received.
This looks ready to go.
Account created. Over to server-ops for SSH key.
Your CVS account has been created. Your CVSROOT should be: email@example.com:/cvsroot Don't forget to set your CVS_RSH environment variable to 'ssh'. If you have any problems connecting, let me know.
