I think technically, the answer to that is "yes", you will automatically
get access to the source repo.  The question I have is whether you
/should/ access the source repo that way, or use the shared pythondev
account.  Two unknowns for me are 1) will there be permission problems
that either prevent you from doing this, or once you've committed a
change, will screw pythondev-access?; 2) when we finally get email
notifications worked in, will it still look like your commit is coming
from the right place.  I think the answer to #2 is yes, but I'm not sure
about #1.

They are the same machine, with different IP addresses.  Anonymous
webdav will require two Apache processes, since different user/groups
are needed and to support different certs for svn.python.org and
(eventually) www.python.org.
