I've just dig into my mailbox (that looks like a black hole) and indeed Nicola wrote to Paolo on February 1st asking about SVN access. At that time I do not recall the GIT repository for read-only access was already in place, I suspect we created it around the same period to overcome a problem related to SVN Access Control List on QE-FORGE (problem that btw still exist).
We probably never announced formally about the private read-only QE mirror GIT repository (a good time will be with the new release next week, plus including something in the documentation as well) but we always accommodated who had the need to access to it. Nicola never got in contact again with us about his specific issue, not a single email to support at qe-forge.org for what I know. That's why he got no access until now. But now I fixed it, he will receive an email from me with the details.

Process this requires less than a day (I do not live in front of a computer, so it is not a immediate procedure). Then those new users can access the q-e-private and keep aligned their own private code when they want and how they want.
