While I agree in circumstances where the webpage is entirely under our control
that a HTTP redirect is the best solution, I suggested this because it doesn't
seem likely to me that they will put up such a redirect.   What we ultimately
end up doing to get people to go to the site instead of savannah is
entirely dependant on what the savannah folks are willing to change.

We should have a look at what other projects which have moved in the past have
done to address this precise issue.
