I've filed the ITP and have the package ready for svn-inject, but
svn.debian.org doesn't like my password. I assume that the account is my
Alioth ID (rra-guest) and the password is the same as the Alioth password,
but that doesn't appear to work; after entering that password, it just
prompts me for a password again (which from ssh usually means an incorrect
password). After three tries, it switches prompts to one that asks for
firstname.lastname@example.org's password and tells me permission denied after
each password try, but no additional luck.
Similarly, I've added my ssh public key from id_dsa.pub to the form at
<https://alioth.debian.org/account/editsshkeys.php>, but svn.debian.org
isn't accepting public key authentication for the rra-guest account.
I'm not quite sure what the next debugging step should be. Any assistance
would be appreciated; I'm probably missing something obvious.
BTW, the package is available from:
deb-src http://archives.eyrie.org/debian unstable main
