No, I'm not a developer.
Now that i've read the message one more time, I see that it I had
misunderstood it.

It said
A number of developers have accounts for accessing the Debian web pages.
Could you switch to using cvs over ssh? Simply send me mail and I'll
delete you password and add you to the debwww group on va.

And I thought that this was said to all the translators and that adding to
the debwww group would be sufficient to use the SSH method.

Anyway, never mind. Forgive my mistake
