Per [1], you should be able to request access through nm.d.o.  In my
experience sponsoring access requests for non-DMs, DSA has been happy to
honor reasonable requests, but can take a little while to get to them; I
don't know how the DM experience looks here.

That said, I don't see an alpha porter box (or any alpha systems at
all!) on [2], and alpha-porterbox.debian.net doesn't respond to pings,
let alone ssh attempts.  Perhaps an official porter can help you out
here; copying debian-alpha accordingly.

For all I know, these could both be intermittent glitches, but tests
should of course reliably succeed.
