Do I qualify if I "want to run" dragonfly but my machines are too new? :)

I have this exact problem at the moment I am afraid.

I will send key and username soon.

Ta-da! Hiten and I were talking and shell access came up. I thought
about it a bit and initially thought I would put together a shell box
for committers, but then it occured to me that there was no reason to
restrict such a box only to committers if appropriate security measures
were taken.

So, this is an announcement of the availability of a shell machine to
DragonFly developers. You do *NOT* need to be a committer. Any developer
who has been at least somewhat active on the mailing lists can get an

Requirements for getting a shell account:

* You must be at least somewhat active on the DragonFly mailing lists.

* You do NOT need to be a committer.

* EMail me an sshv2 ( DSA ) key and username. sshv1 is not enabled on
this box.

* Only request an account if you need one. If you already have access to
powerful machines you do not need an account.

* The machine is leaf.dragonflybsd.org.


* Please do not set a password in your account or create ssh private keys
in your account. Use your .ssh/authorized_keys file only. It is
acceptable to use ssh -A from another box into this one in order to
then be able to ssh out of this box to another (i.e. committers: use ssh -A
so you can commit to crater.dragonflybsd.org from this box).

* Note that "/FreeBSD" contains a read-only mostly up-to-date FreeBSD CVS and
source tree, and "/cvs" contains a read-only NFS mount from the main cvs
repository which you can run cvs -R ... on.

* Lengthy automated builds should be restricted to the wee-hours of the
morning (1:00am to 7:00am) pacific time. This is a fairly hefty machine
and developers can do manually initiated buildworlds and such. Still,
be nice to your fellow users and do not use make -j N.

* Please do not use this machine for non-dragonfly related work unless
  otherwise given permission to by Matt Dillon.  Obviously minor little
  things here and there are just fine.

* Please do not abuse my limited bandwidth.  NO SERVERS MAY BE RUN.

* BACKUP YOUR OWN DATA! This machine is not currently being backed up.
