[Sugar-devel] addons.mozilla.org - what needs to be done?

Ok, I think Tomeu and I caught up tonight and I'm ready to keep pushing 
this forward, so... *tinkers with 

Time for the questions.

1. There are a few instances of remora running on sunjammer. Which one 
is the one under active development/test? (Or is it expected that people 
will be developing/testing on their local machines right now? I believe 
we should be using one common instance, but am not positive.)


2. How do people get access to play with it? (rw privileges in the 
virtual host dir and access to the mysql db, what else is needed?) Tomeu 
checked and it seems to be owned by the www-data group rather than the 
addons group (and it's also not clear how to get added to the addons group).

Concrete example: http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/256 is an easy bug 
(text replacement) and I can fix it myself in a jiffy, given the right 
privs. Can someone walk me through getting those privs / making that commit?

3. If you break the live instance under test, what subset of the 
instructions on http://sugarlabs.org/go/DevelopmentTeam/a.s.o must be 
run (by whom / with what privs) to restore it to its former glory?

Answers to all these things will, of course, be documented on the wiki. 
;) I'll be on IRC from Catalyst tomorrow looking for people who can help 
with this... (hi dfarning!)


PS: php/mysql wizards welcomed, and testers will be needed soon!
