Well, prompt by accident only: Took me several hours to write that mail 
and only afterwards did I notice that you'd poked me :-)

Do you already use Alioth?  If not you should create an account there.

Are you a Debian Developer?  If not, you need to request membership of 
the collab-maint area - and in the description field explain that you 
need it to help participate here in the CDBS team.

If you already have write access to collab-maint (either because you are 
a Debian Developer or because you have been granted access for some 
other purpose), then it should simply be a matter of adjusting the URL 
of your git remote in your <cdbs-dir>/.git/config file.

Probably it currently looks like this:

   url = git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/cdbs

You need it to look like one of these

   url = git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/cdbs
   url = git.debian.org:/git/collab-maint/cdbs

Beware that if you use the short-form, then in addition to stripping the 
leading protocol, you also need to add a colon after the hostname.  That 
have caused me many hours of frustration to forget that :-)

Ok?  Or tell me if you need more detailed help.
