Some of this -- e.g. how to gain CVS access -- is already answered in
the xorg wiki on fd.o. Some is implicit. Some has been talked about on
Read the wiki first and if you think something needs to be expanded on
or clarified please make suggestions. People who know the answers should
get a wiki account on fd.o and start adding to the wiki.
