The recommended way to deal with differing usernames on both sides
is to use a ~/.ssh/config that indicates your username.

svn.debian.org is alioth.debian.org, all DD have accounts and external
contributors can also have accounts (with a -guest suffix though).

See http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth and all the related pages in the wiki.

Yes you have a password/key for svn.debian.org (and alioth.debian.org and
all other VCS hosted there).

And yes Alioth is protected by fail2ban so if you fail to login 3 times
your IP is blocked for 10 minutes.
