    Hi! Ive been looking on codex and tried to ask on IRC, also.

    How can I grant access to the SVN of a plugin?
    Is there any place with this kind of information?

  • Hi! Are you wanting to use svn to install/update plugins on your site OR are you making a plugin and need svn help?



    I have a plugin hosted on Codex SVN. I want some other users to be able to commit there.




    Bump… !?

    Contributors are granted permission based on your readme.txt file.

    If you already have (or create) a readme.txt file and put a Contributors tag.

    For example

    Contributors: markjaquith, mdawaffe (this should be a list of userid's)

    Check the sample readme.txt file at:

    And apparently you also need to go to and add the contributor there as well?

    I’ve been added as a contributor via the readme file myself and still can’t svn checkin 🙁

    Is the owner also taken from the readme.txt file?

    I’m having a hard time trying to make WP guys to look into my issue (not being able to commit to my plugin) because they don’t see anything wrong.

    One of the problems could be that my plugin readme.txt says “Author: Sergio Zambrano” and that generates a broken link in the plugin’s page, because my username is “SergioZambrano”.

    If the owner is taken from the readme.txt file that’d explain the issue. (Although Otto said he logged in with my credentials and it worked fine).

    Note: On top of all this in one of the tests I did logging in to forums, my NAME (Sergio Zambrano) used as USERNAME logs me in fine! Yes, with the space!
    So at some point the “duplicity” username-fullname stopped working in plugins but keeps working in forums, and now my plugin won’t work.

    The contents of the readme have no effect on Contributors.

    A plugin owner, when logged into the plugins directory will see an Admin tab on their plugin page. On that page a contributor can be added or removed.

    (SocialBlogsite – the problem I believe stems from your having more than one login. I have suggested that we consolidate all your plugins under one login name).
