To obtain commit 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 committing changes to SVN, 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.pubYou 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.
Note that if you would prefer to keep your communications with me private, you can encrypt your email using my public key.
Once you are setup with an account, you will need to use your account to checkout a copy of buildroot from Subversion:
svn list svn+ssh://email@example.com/svn/trunk/buildroot
You can then enter the newly checked out buildroot directory, make changes, check your changes, diff your changes, revert your changes, and and commit your changes usine commands such as:
svn diff svn status svn revert svn commit
