(I can recommend using IRC for this kind of communication problems, as I
was able to quickly find overholt, mjw and gbenson on #fedora-java,
who helped track this one down, and they were very helpful.)
As far as the problem you describe goes, you're right, there are no
to create .ssh/id_dsa on the 'Join' page. If you scroll down to the
'Get a Fedora account part', you'll see a link in the first line to the
of the Fedora Account System
on it will take you to

What is an SSH key, and why do I need one?
SSH <http://openssh.org/> , short for Secure SHell, allows
cryptographically authenticated and encrypted connections between
computers. SSH is used to tunnel CVS connections for the Fedora Project.
Anytime you use CVS with the Fedora Project, the transaction will be
performed through an SSH connection. Your SSH key will identify you to
the CVS servers, and host keys on the CVS servers will allow your
computer to verify the remote server, too. An SSH key is only needed if
you are planning on contributing source code, working on Fedora Project
website pages or using fedorapeople.org.
See Cryptography <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Cryptography>
and clicking on the cryptography link will take you to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Cryptography , which in turn has a brief
introduction to creating ssh keys at
when it comes to uploading the freshly created ssh key to your fedora
account, I hope the way pointed out by david walluck at
If you run into further trouble, jump on IRC on #fedora-java on Freenode,
and we should be able to help you, and others at the NetBeans team get
code packaged for Fedora.
mjw (Mark Wielaard) suggested that it's best to work with the sponsor,
case that's fitzsim (Tom Fitzsimmons). Feel free to contact me, too!
best of luck,

I need help with fedora-cvs, it yields:
Error: Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages
I guess that will be because missing .ssh directory, but when following
there was no instruction to create .ssh/id_dsa! Or is it there and I am
just too blind to find it?
