Create OSGeo Userid
OSGeo user IDs provide access to many OSGeo services, including bug trackers and wikis. Note that you do NOT need an ID to download and use OSGeo software!
Due to a recent increase in registration of fake users as spam agents, we're currently requiring new users to request and obtain a "mantra" from the OSGeo system administrators.
In order to verify your request, we will need to know a couple of details so as to build "trust":
- Why do you need to create a new OSGeo User?
- If it is to report a bug, for example, mention which project is affected and very briefly describe what the issue is (you'll be able to file a full report in the ticket, once you are granted a OSGeo User)
- Or alternatively, please display one public affiliation that has a link to the mail address you're using. For example, university, company, public profile on any of social sites like SourceForge, Twitter, GitHub, BitBucket, or your posts archived in any of the OSGeo mailing lists (https://lists.osgeo.org), etc.
- And BTW you don't need an account to download qgis plugins.
Should you need any further assistance, you can find OSGeo administrators on dedicated IRC channel of the freenode network:
