I can't tell what is needed since I'm not involved :-) I've just watched
the progress every now and then, since the recent progress were done as
part of the last SoC. So if help is needed, I hope it will be requested.
But again, maybe no help is needed for this specific issue?

Last time I heard about it, help was still needed for the bugzilla3
migration ;-)

The new system works this way:

 + someone requests an account
 + if it's a svn account, it's for at least one specific module. The
   maintainers of this module are automatically mailed so they approve
   this request. (that's why the new MAINTAINERS format was needed)
 + if maintainers approved a request, a sysadmin validates this and the
   account is created.

I thought this was explained on devel-announce-list, but maybe it was
only on desktop-devel-list. Or just IRC :-)
