[Bioc-devel] Problems while activating my bioconductor git account

Dear Bioconductors,

I recently got an automated message reporting a problem concering the 
'mgsa' package for which I'm listed as the maintainer. I would like to 
check this out and apply a possibly fix if there is a problem. I haven't 
done any contribution since quite a while and Bioconductor has undergone 
some infrastructure changes in the meantime, in particullar, the switch 
to git.

If I understood everything correctly, I have to activate my account via 
https://git.bioconductor.org/BiocCredentials/account_activation/ before 
being able to push something to the package source.

I'm getting following response from the Webserver:

"mail using sebastianbauer.info is not associated with a maintainer of a 
Bioconductor package. Please check the spelling or contact 
bioc-devel using r-project.org for help"

I'm quite sure that the spelling is correctly, so I'm trying now the 
second option :)

If you look at 
https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/mgsa.html then 
clearly this mail address is associated to the package  (obviously, I 
wouldn't get the error report then).

It may or may not have something to do with the fact that at the time I 
contributed the package a decade ago, the email address I used was 
Sebastian.Bauer using charite.de.

Any help how to get access to the source back is highly appreciated.
