Marcos our Asturian localizers needs his LDAP account to be granted SVN as part of our @localizers group

Marcos already has HG access and provided a signed Committer's agreement (see

His LDAP account is:

Over to server ops for addition to @localizers group.

Forgot to flip the relevant svn_ bits, which I've done now. Should work fine.

Hi! Now appears works the login, but not the permissions :)
Could you review it, please?
Thanks very much!
Comment 6 Shyam Mani [:fox2mike] 2010-08-16 05:58:31 PDT
That's because @localizers don't have commit access to

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to CHECKOUT request for '/!svn/ver/69728/projects/'

That's why the error above.
Comment 7 Pascal Chevrel:pascalc 2010-08-16 06:11:27 PDT
shyam, all localizers have access to but I believe the problem is that ast is a brand new locale (we will release it for the first time with 3.6.9) so trunk/ast/ should be added to the folders localizers have access to (as well as hy-AM and gd which are also new locales that should be released next quarter). Can you add /ast/, /gd/ and /hy-AM/ to the properties @localizers have access to or do you want me to file a separate bug?
Comment 8 Shyam Mani [:fox2mike] 2010-08-16 06:22:22 PDT

A new bug would be better :) Thanks! If you want to you can make that block this bug so once that's fixed, Marcos should have access.
