> Gregory Shimansky
> Alexey Varlamov
> Alexei Zakharov

> 1) test ssh-ing to the server people.apache.org.
> 2) Change your login password on the machine
> 3) Add a public key to .ssh so you can stop using the password
> 4) Set your SVN password  : just type 'svnpasswd'

> switch". (See the manual)
> Finally, although you now have the ability to commit, please remember :
> 1) continue being as transparent and communicative as possible.  You

> ACQs and BCC.
> Again, thanks for your hard work so far, and welcome.
