The complete account request information is available on AccountRequests page, here is a short version.

Create a bug on for product "", component "New Accounts", named "Request for account for ooo-build" containing the following information:

  • real name
  • email address
  • preferred account name
  • GPG public key
  • RSA SSH public key Add kendy at suse cz to the CC:, so that I can approve your request.

GPG key

If you don't have one yet, do:

gpg --gen-key # choose default values everywhere it asks you anything
gpg --keyserver --send-keys 0xTHEIDENTIFICATION # to send it to the server
gpg --export -a <your email address> # that's what you should send me

And keep your private key secure!

We also need you to be reasonably connected to the GPG network, so please find someone who can sign your key - you'll probably have to do this in person.


You probably want to have a special key for the account. To create it:

ssh-keygen -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/yourname-fdo
# send ~/.ssh/ to me
# edit your ~/.ssh/config to contain:
Host *
    User yourusername
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/yourname-fdo

And keep your private key secure!
