Oh dear, or policy needs *urgently* a refresh since we have moved from
Alioth to Salsa last month.  I've started with refreshing the text so
this specific chapter is not totally outdated any more.  Please ask for
membership on Salsa (as the text says now).  Sorry for the confusion but
we are in the middle of the move of our main development platform

While a patch for the bug would be also a solution I'd prefer if you
register on Salsa since if you are interested in running as outreachy
internal this will be the development platform to use.  And yes, a
sponsor will be needed in any case and you find one here on this mailing
list easily.

Thanks to you
