You'll have to sign contributor agreement  and send it to Zope
Corporation (e.g. scan it and send an email, or fax it). Tell them
you're working on Grok and/or Grok extensions so that they know what
your connection is. You will then be able to commit to svn.zope.org
using your zope.org username and an SSH key that you have to upload. See
 for more info.

What would you do in a pure Python application? I presume you would
write a few lines of Python. It seems to me we should do the same in
Grok, though of course it means you're hard-coding database access into
your application code.

Sounds like a reasonable aproach. It's what z3c.zalchemy does, by the way.
