5.1 Initial Setup

Congratulations! After becoming a quality contributor to gawk development, you’ve been invited to join the private development list and to accept having commit access to the repo.

The first thing to do is to create an account on Savannah, choosing a unique user name. To do so, go to the Savannah home page and click on the “New User” link. The setup will include uploading of your ssh key, as per the instructions on the Savannah web page.

After you’ve done all this, send email to the maintainer with your Savannah user name, and he will add you to the list of users who have commit access to the repo.
