I don't see any reason not to, and I doubt anyone mailed you off-list 
about it. :)  So if lvh and jesstess want to send me their SSH public 
keys, I'll set it up.
I also offered commit access to Esteve recently.  Esteve, want to send 
me your key, too?

With respect to the lack of an official process for adding contributors, 
yea.  It doesn't come up so often that we've bothered to streamline it 
much.  We should probably do *something*, though.  With that in mind, 
here's a dump of some ideas that I think everyone knows already, but 
should probably be explicit:

  * Keep your SSH keys secure.  If they're compromised, let us know so we 
can change them out for new ones.

  * Follow the documented development process.  In general, you have free 
reign in branches (but please follow the branch naming convention), but 
only commit to trunk after the review process has been carried out 

  * You must license anything you contribute to Twisted under the MIT 

That's probably all the stuff you need to know up front.

We should have a document somewhere, maybe.
