Subject Re: REMINDER : Upcoming change to SVN authentication
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 14:30:03 GMT
Sending this to any Geronimo committers having problems committing to svn.

SVN authentication is now using LDAP.  See the instructions below, about changing your LDAP
password, if you do not know your LDAP password.

This information was sent to committers@a.o. If you are an ASF Committer, you should be subscribed
to the committers mailing list -- it provides you with useful information.
