For some reason, this message was bounced by the Quantum server.
Perhaps it was in HTML, I don't know. Anyway, I happen to see it

I'll reply after it is posted

I made a post 3 days ago to the blfs-dev mailing list in regards to a
new package that I created as per the 'Getting Involved' section, and I
notice that no one has responded or done anything about it.
I would like to become an editor (i.e. direct access to svn) and
contribute to this project. My main interest/focus would be on GNOME.
BTW liboil is one of those dependencies. I've already done the GNOME
2.26.2 core section with a couple of run time teething problems which
should be quickly sorted out. Can you let me know if I've done something
wrong or if there is a different method of submission to non-editors. I
think that it would be disappointing if non-editor submissions would
take weeks to merge/commit in if at all. I've also notice at least one
other ticket where a patch was provided 6 months ago (libtasn1) and yet
it still has not been committed.
Yours sincerely,
