Yes, I meat that it just doesn't say where to apply to. I ended up sending 
an e-mail to Per Liden and this mailing list. That's all. 

About the bug reporting system... The reason I asked about an account is 
because bugzilla usually requires one and it sends you updates when people 
reassign, close as duplicate, close as fixed, etc. a bug. Also sometimes I 
find out more information, or a solution of my own. Anyway, it's not 
necessary, but you'd definitely get more information out of people if you 
could ask them for clarification or something. 
Oh and I forgot to say (in my application I sumbitted a few minutes ago) 
that I did read the MaintainerGuidlines and agree to them. I wanted to 
make a note too, that I will do my best to mantain my ports. For the gcc-
ssp I will have to follow what gcc CRUX has in ports as well as what patch 
Etoh has out and for gaim I'd have to follow both Gaim and the 
corresponding gaim-encrption plugin. 

Okay, class in 10 minutes. Have a good one.

"And someone else might feel something
scratching in his mouth. he goes 
to the mirror opens his mouth: and his tongue
is an enormous, live 
centipede, rubbing its legs together and
scraping his palate. He'd like to spit 
it out, but the centipede is part of him and
he will to tear it out with his own 
hands..." -- Jean Paul Sartre
