Problem accessing e-group “CMS web Access” in TWiki

I tried to click on the “CMSSW” in the TWiki web, and I am denied to go to that page because I am not a member of the e-group “CMS-web-Access”. So, I emailed the TWiki person, Peter Jones, and this is the reply:

{You need to be in the egroup ‘cms-web-access’ in order to see CMS pages. 

Check with your CMS coordinator

Peter Jones}

So, I am thinking if we need Arno’s permition to join the e-group…

Thanks, Elim =D

I also tried doing the wget thing beforehand but that didn’t work either.
