great but does any software need to be installed? That will be a problem 
  as its using for hosting.

if its in (which is in gnome cvs) then 
you guys can send patches to edit stuff (just as if it was source code) would be great to get some accounts...yes, to install
wordpress we would just need access to a mysql server. I'm sure php
already is setup on the box(es).

How can I get a CVS/shell account? It would be great to setup
a basic policy on this, like submit 1 or 2 patches, then get CVS commit
access and account. This works amazingly well for
development and really keeps the bandwidth of developers open. Cool?

yes but from

"We do request that applicants have submitted a reasonable number of 
patches to an existing maintainer, or bugzilla reports before they 
request direct commit access."

Im not sure how many is reasonable but its probably more than one or two?

shall we say 3 big ones or 6 medium ones or 12 smallish/trivial ones

I think we should lower this and make it more reasonable until we get
more contributors. I think we should make it similar to how its setup in We should require 2 patches and then support an
application for access to CVS. This makes it simpler for wanna-be
contributors and also will require us to work with patch submitters to
meet the standard for the codebase.

This works super awesome for several of my projects and highly support

(anybody who feels they already qualify and want cvs write access then 
let me know)

I need to practice what I preach and submit 2 patches ;)
