Text are proposed by filing a bug report to "release-notes". It is
forwarded to email@example.com
The above mentioned Subversion repository is a part of DDP thus you need
to be alioth "Debian Documentation". Its unix group name is "ddp".
How it works, see recent debian-doc mailing list activity.
(Can someone document this in nice English?)
As for acess request, you need to join from
(Click right lower part stating "Request to join".)
For DD, basically when I see mail, I add them. For non-DD, they have to
explain rationale etc. concisely. Pretty low barrier at this moment.
Reminder to me: http://ddp.alioth.debian.org/ This page content is
somewhat confusing and outdated. This needs to be updated.
The old CVS is not used any more.
