Is this a lot of code?  If so, there is a software grant process you have to
execute before donating the code.  If not, you can probably just attach the
source to a JIRA issue for review.  You have to be the copyright owner and
have permission from any other copyright owners in your code base, plus you
can't have dependencies on code that isn't licensed in an Apache-compatible
way.

In general, we can't give out SVN access until all of this process is dealt
with and there is some initial review of the code.  But if you are the
shepherd for a significant donation, you will likely be given access
quickly.

It is done this way as an extra check to try to make sure some code that
shouldn't be donated doesn't get into SVN because once it is there, you
can't really get rid of it.
