Procedure to request GRASS-SVN write access

The GRASS Project Steering Commitee is responsible for granting SVN write access to contributors (as defined in RFC1).

Setting up the new SVN write access

Once SVN access is granted, the requestor needs to obtain an "osgeo_id" at http://www.osgeo.org/osgeo_userid If s/he already have an "osgeo_id" but forgot it, it can be searched at http://www.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/ldap_web_search.py The GRASS-PSC chair (currently Markus Neteler) and other developers can add this "osgeo_id" to the OSGeo LDAP authentication system.

Contributions have to follow the BestPractise rules (see also SUBMITTING* files in the source code).

Then what?

Happy hacking :) The requester should subscribe to the grass-commit mailing list which distributes GRASS-SVN commit differences for real-time code review.
