That isn't necessary. Before auric was restricted, their help wasn't needed to do this; an autobuilder admin could do it him/herself. After all, it's nothing more than "add the SSH key to ~<something>/.ssh/authorized_keys, drop the mail address in ~<something>/.forward-<somethingelse>, and perhaps add the information to some list of buildd boxes we have to make maintenance of these files a little easier". Doing the setup of the buildd machines doesn't require training either; in the cases at hand, James and Ryan don't even have accounts on the new machines. -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
