Dear Justin
First, thanks for your reviews and I'm sorry you are finding problems
to contribute more comfortably with the change of the repository from
Subversion to Git.

Mmm I think the correct wiki page is this:


There is no mention about the multi-file setup (I suppose you refer to
the "drafts" folder) because it's an experimental new workflow that we
are trying in the team; it's not decided yet to use it, and in any
case, it would affect the editors of DPN but not reviewers and

For reviews and translations, the only original file to look at is the
one referenced below:

one ^. You can ignore the others, the IDEAS file and the "drafts"
folder, and I'm very sorry that you worked double (or three times...)
with this issue :_(

I'm not sure which is the problem you are facing, but maybe you cannot
push because you cloned the repository anonymously (you didn't upload
ssh keys to your profile in Alioth)?

If this is the case, in the referenced wiki page,
https://wiki.debian.org/ProjectNews/HowToContribute , in the section
"Accessing the DPN Git repository", there is a mention to "Before
accessing the Git repository, you might want to read the section about
SSH access on Alioth" with a link to the corresponding page about ssh
and alioth.

If that's not the case, I'd like to help on debugging the issue, and
update our documentation, if needed. Would you mind to send to me or
to the list this information?

* The command you used for cloning the git repo (if you remember it)
* If you cloned the DPN repo in dpn folder, it's interesting to know
the contents of the file dpn/.git/config, in particular, the "url"
where you push to . Mine is like this:

        repositoryformatversion = 0
        filemode = true
        bare = false
        logallrefupdates = true
[remote "origin"]
        url = ssh://git.debian.org/git/publicity/dpn.git
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[branch "master"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/master

About your diff, thank you very much for the many fixed. I just
applied it and pushed the changes to the repo.
