2. Getting a member account

2.1. How a member account is created

Please read Participating in Momonga Project to apply for an account.

The procedure after an account application is as follows.

  1. Application -> admin -> Members-ML: If satisfactory, accept the application. (Go to 2.)

  2. admin -> Applicant : Request for an SSH public key (see : Section 2.2, “How to make an SSH public key”)

  3. Applicant -> admin : Creation and submission of the key

  4. admin : Creation of the account and registration on various services

Going through this procedure, a new member account in the Project is issued.

2.2. How to make an SSH public key

Only a brief explanation is given here.

    $ ssh-keygen -t rsa


    $ ssh-keygen -t dsa

Execute one of the above commands. When asked for a passphrase, enter the one you like. It can include spaces. Specify one which is not too short or too long.

When a passphrase is registered, id_rsa and id_rsa.pub are created under ~/.ssh/ (or, id_dsa, id_dsa.pub). Among these, one with a .pub extension is a public key and one without is a private key.

Send your public key in to admin of the Momonga Project.
