Thanks Erin!

I see you changed the ticket to just creating an email account. That can be done without making an LDAP account -- we just add an entry to the "virtual" table on our mailserver, and poof he's got an email address.

Also, LDAP accounts are needed for git access, but not for the legacy svn access -- those are separate repositories, and Nick is a good person for helping to set up access to those. (I might be a good person too, but I don't think I've done it in 8 years, so hopefully Nick is better.)

So, if we're going to be setting Brad up with access to git repositories (mostly used for coding), or he's going to want to ssh in to torproject computers to run programs on them, we should definitely do the ldap account. But if it's just going to be email and svn for the forseeable future, maybe we should hold off on the ldap account until it's needed? For example, I think Sue has only an email address and svn access.

Oh, and one final thing: your signature is a bad signature here. weasel and I tried messing with your text to make the signature valid (maybe you just left out a few characters?), but we didn't manage to do it.

(For comparison, in #17886 we decided that making an ldap account for Shari didn't make sense yet, and I don't think anybody has had regrets about that choice so far.)

Replying to arma:

Great! Thanks for the info. I think just email and SVN will be sufficient for the foreseeable future, so I'll email Nick about the latter. :)

With regard to my signature, I'm not sure what the issue is. It was my first time using GPG to sign a block of text, so maybe I need to mess with it a bit more. :)

[...] email [...] will be sufficient for the foreseeable future

I just made an email forward for brad@…. It should go live in an hour give or take. Please reopen this ticket if it doesn't start working in a bit.
