How do you get to this?  When I use the bookmarklet I get the basic
authentication dialog and can't get past that unless I log in.  How
does a non-committer get in?

Also, how long is the anonymous clone URL valid for?  Indefinitely?

Finally, is this a single file per anonymous clone?  or can it map to
an entire change set, e.g., a translation of several pages?
