You will be able to commit that file. The password is empty:


Your commits will be automatically added to the live file at:

The serial number is automatically incremented and prepended to the top of the file via a cron job that runs once per minute. When you commit, include a commit message with what you changed or added, and your name. The commit messages will be published here using the CVS log:

To stop invalid file formats from sneaking in, the automated update system will test parsing the file before publishing it, and will email me if there is a problem. Please try not to break it though, and only update numbering information that you're sure of.

As mentioned in my last post, there is also a sample implementation of how to parse this file in a PHP5 class which you can also access via anonymous CVS:


However access to that project is read only.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or you can simply subscribe to the mailing list.

Happy validating!
