But salsa != "the debian archive".

I guess the question here is:

- is a Salsa account created automatically for every DD? This includes
  non-uploading DDs.
  - if yes:
    /*
    The doc seems to say so: "Debian Developers get synced every 6 hours
    from LDAP and retain their Debian login as salsa username."
    */
    then:
        how does one recover the password?
        /* I remember that the existence and usage of
           https://db.debian.org/ is not well documented for new project
           members.
         */
  - if no:
    can one create a non-guest account on Salsa?
    Or are non-uploading DDs considered "guests" on Salsa?

Cheers!
