Checkin rights to kick start implementation in real world community sites

During the Mozilla meeting in Geneva the Danish and German localization teams decided to build their community websites on the base of the mozilla community theme. Right now the implementation of that in the MCS is at its beginnings and a lot of work remains to be done for the packages to be usable. IMHO the best way to implement the theme is to use it in real wold projects. Since the Danish and German teams plan to do that, we kindly ask for check-in rights to the MCS project.

Our current plan is to have a usable implementation as soon as possible, we plan to do that by compromising on features like single site login or unified installation. The idea is that a theme, that is not used in a real world project is much harder to develop than a theme that is used by real people who can contribute to bug fixing.

Gandalf, how do we proceed regarding the checkin rights?

Just to let you know, I have already started working on this. I will push my changes to my own hg server once I get some acceptable speed wifi, unless I have access to the hg.mozilla.org repository by then.

I have done some work on the phpbb theme. Mostly the front page, viewforum, viewtopic and ucp (User Control Panel). I have placed it here:

Pull access: all, push access: mail me

Feel free to push to hg.mozilla.org

Test site:
admin password is 123456

Everyone with commit rights should be able to commit to MCS repo and you're more then welcomed to hack /drupal directory and ask me for post-reviews on patches touching other areas.

I don't have such to hg.mo, only to svn.mo. How do I get commit rights?

Jesper: I believe you have to file a bug in Server Operations and ask for an HG account. I'll be happy to vouch for you!

I interpret comment 3 as I can just push what I have, so I did.
