No, thanks for the notice, the site looks nice.

Thanks, I think it's a good idea to have a central GNU project
repository, so I'll definitely think about moving all the GNATS
infrastructure there.

There is no question about maintaining a Web page there but before
moving other resources (mailing lists, CVS archive, bug tracking) out of
Red Hat, I'd like to know whether you can guarantee good reliability of
savannah in the future?  Please don't take this question offensive, it
results from my experience with sourceforge, which I'd consider
unsuitable for my projects because of its performance problems.

OK, I'd like to help you if needed, however there are two problems now.

First, please note that Gnatsweb, a GNATS Web frontend, is a software
without license.  Without going into details now, it needn't be easy to
fix, Gerald Pfeifer (the current official Gnatsweb maintainer) is going
to contact RMS about the issue.  Thus there is a problem if you want to
use Gnatsweb as the Web interface.

Another unfortunate fact is that I'm sick for a few weeks now :-(, so I
can't offer much help just now.  Do you have some time frame when you'd
like to install and set up the bug tracking system (something more
concrete than ASAP:-)?

    HG> In order to use Savannah, please register yourself but don't
    HG> submit a project, there is one already waiting for you ;)

OK, I'll do so once I get rid of my sickness.  I'll let you know.

    HG> Thanks for you help maintaining GNATS!!

Thanks for getting run savannah!
