If you want a Git account so you can commit to Gtk+, it should be pretty
easy. Three steps basically:
1. For the person requesting it: follow
2. A gtk+ maintainer: approving the Git account
3. Accounts team: setting it up

This can all be done very quickly.

If for some reason there is a delay in above process, feel free to
send me a message.

If you think it is better to have other resources (mailing list), just
file a bug at Bugzilla, for details see Best to get started with the Git
account first.

Above and other infrastructure procedures are documented at:

Note that I don't see a Gtk+ OSX backend as any different from Gtk+. IMO
you could use a branch in gtk+ or commit directly. However, I'm not a
maintainer, talk to them.

If you need anything Bugzilla related, file a bug in the product. Need permissions? Contact Bugsquad.

In all above cases (except Gtk+ maintainership ;), if you need
assistance, feel free to contact me.
