Please let us know what parts are vague; we've tried to make it clear,
but we tend to forget things we think are obvious, so we're happy to fix
The process to apply is about the following:
1. package software, create ports, publish them, maintain them
2. Read http://clc.morpheus.net:6999/clc/wiki?p=MaintainerGuidelines and
see whether you agree to the rules and requirements metioned there;
also read the CLC package guidelines, available through the
"Documents" section of the CLC webpage, and validate your ports
3. Send an application to clc-devel at lists.berlios.de, containing "links
to packages the applicant did, and a list of packages she/he'd like to
maintain. It's best to send an URL to some ports the applicant made".
We also like to know who we're dealing with, so some notes about you are
definitely appreciated. There are some examples in the mailing list
After that, some maintainers will look into the ports and advocate for
the applicant if they think he/she is a good match, or give some tips
how to improve them to fit

For now, we've never had someone asking for an account, but if you plan
to do a lot of bug reporting, this could be arranged. Anonymous
reporting is fine though.
Hope this helps,
