Hi Emmanuel,

Thanks for your interest in GStreamer.

You do not need a developer account with ssh access to contribute to GStreamer. You can simply attach patches in bugzilla where they will be reviewed and then committed. See


for more details.

We only give developer accounts to contributors who a record of substantial contributions over a longer period of time.

Hello Tim,

Thanks for quick reply. I understant your point.

However my trouble is to get access to sources, and not develop (not yet).
I use a linux distribution based on yocto with a rule requesting a git clone of GStreamer. (Please, see the log extract in attachment)

 - Perhaps the distribution iq wrongly set, and i have to fight against it
 - Or how to get this git clone of gstreamer based on this yocto rule.

To complete the picture, i am behind a company firewell, and i have to go through the company proxy. The 'git' protocol used is based on ssh. And so i 'just' need to put my ssh public key on freedesktop to please this yocto.

Try with failure:
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/common

But perhaps i missed something, and you have a good practice to please this yocto rule.

Thanks and regards.

You're not going to get ssh access just because you work behind a firewall :)

You should be able to clone using the http protocol in your setup:

In any case, this is not a support forum, please go to the gstreamer-devel mailing list or the #gstreamer IRC channel for support, thanks!

Also, I'm sure someone in your company has figure out how to do this with your setup already, maybe also ask your colleagues.
