....and in the same vein of being as ready as I'll ever be: it's
time to set up Snakebite accounts for everyone! As I've alluded
to in the past, Python language implementation committers get ac-
cess by default.
Can you please e-mail accounts at lists.snakebite.org and provide
the following details:
- Full name (first, last)
- Preferred login name 
- Contact e-mail address 
- SSH key (RSA or DSA is fine): I can't enforce this, but
please make sure you use suitably secured keys, either
via passphrases or storing the private key on encrypted
media. I'd prefer the key in the OpenSSH format as it
saves me having to convert it.
: The original plan to use <first>.<last> login names lasted
about a day; unfortunately, we're at the mercy of NIS on the
UNIX side of things, and login names <= 8 characters with no
special characters (i.e. only a-z) are the lowest common den-
ominator. So, you can have whatever login name you want, as
long as it conforms to <= 8 a-z characters. For a list of
logins already taken: wiki.snakebite.org/accounts.
: This e-mail address will be added to members at lists.snakebite-
.org; a private e-mail list explicitly for Snakebite account
holders (analogous to python-committers@ in a way).
