Developer AccessBecause we use Git for version control, you don't need developer (ssh) access on uclibc.org to contribute to Buildroot, but you can request it if needed.
To obtain developer access, you will need to demonstrate you are serious by submitting a few good patches first. Then, you will need to select a username to use when logging in, you will need to send me the username you have selected, you must send me your preferred contact email address, and finally, you must send me an ssh version 2 DSA key with 1024 bits (the default) or more. If you do not currently have an ssh version 2 DSA key, you can generate a key using the command
ssh-keygen -t dsaThis will create the files
/home/<USERNAME>/ssh/id_dsa /home/<USERNAME>/.ssh/id_dsa.pubIt is recommended that you generate a key with a "passphrase" for security reasons.
Make the file known to the system by running
ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_dsaYou must then send the content of 'id_dsa.pub' to me so I can setup your account. The content of 'id_dsa' should of course be kept secret.
Once you have an account, you can use it to store Git
repositories. Simply put them in subdirectories of your ~/git, and
