i think we can do a better job at explaining how to actually be a new
contributor to Xfce. On the website,
doesnt mention a way to get a git account created. doesn't either, and unfortunately only talks about migration from
the old accounts from svn/previous git setup (who cares about that
now.. ?), and that people should go to
if they want to apply for a git account (which as sofar said me on IRC
is now irrelevant). The 'account maintenance' section on only applies to previous git
accounts, since now (i think) we dont have plain ssh to

Since now all goes through the (awesome!!!) release manager, am i
right in assuming new contributors should apply at if they want an account ? Can
i fix the wiki pages to refer to that form ?

Let's lower the entry barrier for new contributors !
