Yes, I have github access (petdr or peter at emailross.com)

However assume I am a new contributor to Mercury how do I access the
mercury git repo?  The above link doesn't work, it asks me to sign in
and then as I'm not a member of the organization redirects me to my
home page.  This I assume is not the intention.
