For the CVS account you need a sponsor. Sponsors are informed about
new account requests.

For the update in CVS, you need no review. Surely somebody could import
your changes before your get CVS access. But you can as well wait and use
these updates for trying out the Fedora Extras CVS framework yourself.

Yeah, we should really start collecting such packages somewhere, too, and
declare them "deprecated", so they could be removed in the future.
