There is a patch in the Debian BTS to allow pserver rw 
And i will implement this as soon as we have completed migration to 2.6
I plan to allow pserver rw on a project basis
Every project should be able to choose ssh/pserver/no anonymous/possibly

Fill free to send a patch for 2.6

There are also some guide in original sourceforge site but they need to
be rewritten
You can find this in our CVS at
