You don't need login/pw for mentors.....

$ edit ~/.dput.cf
fqdn = mentors.debian.net
method = ftp
login = anonymous
incoming = .
allow_unsigned_uploads = 0
run_dinstall = 0
progress_indicator = 2
passive_ftp = 1

$ dput mentors *.changes

Then just go to mentors.debian.net and it should be on the front page
on the top. Click on the package name, click again for repository url
and copy the dsc file url......

I guess if you have SSH keypair setup and password caching you know
the URL straight away. Well we all have our own little ways of doing
the same thing =DDDD

There a couple of things I've noticed. Missing copyrights holders,
althought it's GPL/public domain. I'm studying for my exam now. I'll
correct those by Saturday evening UK time.
