Solved. I have write access, thanks to Andrei Popescu's help. The
documentation was not very clear. It should state that you need to
upload the ssh key to your alioth account and to be a member of ddp to
gain update privileges. These are sufficient conditions.
I have received some good signs about people who want to contribute. I
hope we do a good job.
