Any FreeBSD committer (src or otherwise) can create an account for
themselves.  Peter has a quick guide for doing that using your freefall
account at http://people.freebsd.org/~peter/p4cookbook.txt.  You'll want
to skim that, and then take a look through the pretty decent documentation
at www.perforce.com on how to use it.  If you've only ever used CVS as a
revision control system, there's some culture shock.  If you've used other
systems that have three-way merging, notions of server state, etc, then it
should fall out pretty naturally. :-)  We've started using it extensively
at work after our very positive experience using the FreeBSD Project's
Perforce server for some of the TrustedBSD work.
