Accounts

Accounts at resiprocate.org are required for editing the wiki and using various other services. A prior expectation to having an account is to be active in the development forums, so discussions there will be the best way to come into the community. Start with suggestions and patches, and consistency of contributions will be the best way to be invited to participate more directly. For joining the lists, please see the reSIProcate Mailman.

Anyone with an existing account can add a new account (and the only way to get an account is to convince someone with an account to add one for you). Account creation is done through the wiki.

If you have an account and are ready to add a new account for someone, use the Signup page. Note that this means you are vouching for them since at least some minimal privileges are conferred just by having the account, do not add an account for someone if you have any doubts (send a note to the developers list if you want confirmation first).

To complete the process, the new account will need to verify their e-mail address by following a URL mailed to the address. After the confirmation the new account will automatically be granted the ability to edit the wiki.

Github[edit]

For Github commit access, an administrator will be required to add the account to the group associated with the appropriate repository. Send email to the development list requesting commit privileges for the new account. Please remember to mention your Github user ID.

Changing Your Password[edit]

Editing the wiki[edit]

For tips on editing the wiki, see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Contents
