<h3>Morris Dancing</h3>
<p>Subversion commit access requires an account on Morris. The server
behind and If you want to be able to commit things to
Subversion, first contribute some stuff to show you are serious, can handle
some responsibility, and that your patches don't generally need a lot of
cleanup. Then, very nicely ask one of us (<a href="">Rob
Landley</a> for BusyBox, or <a href="">Erik
Andersen</a> for uClibc) for an account.</p>
<p>If you're approved for an account, you'll need to send an email from your
preferred contact email address with the username you'd like to use when
committing changes to SVN, and attach a public ssh key to access your account
<p>If you don't currently have an ssh version 2 DSA key at least 1024 bits
long (the default), you can generate a key using the
command <b>ssh-keygen -t dsa</b> and hitting enter at the prompts. This
will create the files <b>~/.ssh/id_dsa</b> and <b>~/.ssh/</b>
You must then send the content of '' to me so I can set up your
account. (The content of 'id_dsa' should of course be kept secret, anyone
who has that can access any account that's installed your public key in
its <b>.ssh/authorized_keys</b> file.)</p>
<p>Note that if you would prefer to keep your communications with us
private, you can encrypt your email using
<a href="">Rob's public key</a> or
<a href="">Erik's public
<p>Once you are setup with an account, you will need to use your account to
checkout a copy of BusyBox from Subversion:</p>
<p><b>svn checkout svn+ssh://</b></p>
<p><b>svn checkout svn+ssh://</b></p>
<p>You must change <em>username</em> to your own username, or omit
it if it's the same as your local username.</p>
<p>You can then enter the newly checked out project directory, make changes,
check your changes, diff your changes, revert your changes, and and commit your
changes using commands such as:</p>
svn diff
svn status
svn revert
EDITOR=vi svn commit
svn log -v -r PREV:HEAD
svn help
<p>For additional detail on how to use Subversion, please visit the
<a href="">the Subversion website</a>.
You might also want to read online or buy a copy of <a
href="">the Subversion Book</a>...</p>
<p>A morris account also gives you a personal web page
( comes from ~/public_html on morris), and of
course a shell prompt you can ssh into (as a regular user, root access is
reserved for Erik and Rob). But keep in mind an account on Morris is a
priviledge, not a requirement. Most contributors to busybox and uClibc
haven't got one, and accounts are handed out to make the project maintainers'
lives easier, not because "you deserve it".</p>
