Hm, strange, you should be able to login with ssh.

Or there might be a problem with alioth; `getent passwd
lkundrak-guest' on moszumanska.d.o doesn't return anything ...

Weird; https://alioth.debian.org/users/lkundrak-guest exists and

I suggest to ask the Alioth admins on IRC (#alioth on OFTC), if the
above mentioned wiki page doesn't give any ideas.

Not sure if this is written down anywhere but our long-standing
custom is that every group member works on each package they want to
work on -- after all that's the strength of team work.
