Created account with your new key.

For anonymous browsing and checkout, use

The svn url for locale related checkins/checkouts will be

Your e-mail address will be your svn login as well.  You can pass this
user name directly on the svn url in the command line, but some svn
clients get confused with commands like this.  In the example below
substitute 'email@host.tld' with your e-mail address.

svn co svn+ssh://

They interpret 'host.tld' to be the svn repository host name and to be the revision.  In unix environments, to get
around this (client confusion), put this in your ~/.ssh/config

User email@host.tld

Then, you can simply use "svn co svn+ssh://"

Please refer to copious google search results to get this working on
non-unix platforms.

I cannot get it to work. I tried asking here: but got no answer. Where should I ask for help?

You should ask for help here. Try using plink to just connect to using username "". What do you get?

I get this:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Jesper>set PATH=C:\Program Files\PuTTY;%PATH%

C:\Documents and Settings\Jesper>plink
Using username "".
No supported authentication methods left to try!

This bug seems to have gone cold. Now I am also localizing AMO, and to get AMO localizer SVN access requires localizer SVN access. I would appreciate  if this bug could be fixed in the near future. The server is still rejecting my key, saying that is doesn't know it.

That's because it is resolved as fixed. Reopening the bug would have caught somebody's attention. I am doing that for you now.

We support svn over https now.  Maybe you should give that a try.
Comment 9 User image Jesper Kristensen 2007-04-26 11:04:18 PDT
Great. I tested it by correcting the Thunderbird start page to link to the Danish version of AMO, and it worked.

Who should I talk to, to get any updates published?

Mike, can you answer this question for him?
Comment 11 User image Wil Clouser [:clouserw] 2007-04-29 15:38:39 PDT
If you have updates to that need to go out right away, you should talk to pascalc.

If you have an update for AMO that needs to go out right away, you can talk to me.
