Re: howto update mail/alpine in pkgsrc

I've updated the makefile and distinfo of mail/alpine in order to
update it to 2.21. Alpine 2.21 builds/installs/runs on my local
machine now, but I'd like to send a patch to NetBSD to update the
pkgsrc tree.

I'll probably have to create a diff and send a bugreport, but how to
do this in NetBSD?

Two options:

 run cvs diff (with -N if needed, e.g. if you created patches).  Also
 write the commit message that should be used, if you can.  use send-pr
 to send this.

 get an account for pkgsrc-wip, described at and
 commit an updated version.  Place in COMMIT_MESSAGE or similar the
 text that should be used for the commit to pkgsrc proper.  After
 verifying it with pkglint and building with PKG_DEVELOPER=yes, feel
 free to send a note here.

The first option is the traditional path.  A number of people with
commit access to pkgsrc prefer the second option.

I got an account for pkgsrc-wip, installed and configured wip according to but when doing a "git pull -r" I get an error:

root@shogun # git pull -r
Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

What am I doing wrong?
