No, it isn't the group that is reviewing your application to the GNU project
and we (Savannah administrators) are two different groups. We would only
register your Savannah project as a GNU project when we receive a message from
Richard Stallman declaring your project as part of the GNU project.

Good, we do not question your intentions; we just want to avoid confussion by
not assuming that a project will be part of GNU before it is accepted into it.

OK, that is a option. Since you already started the application process for the
GNU project, you can wait until you get the results and then submit your
project to Savannah.

As I said, we have nothing to say about the acceptal of you project for the
GNU project. It is wise to keep your domains as you planned and wait for the
results of the GNU evaluators.
