Thanks, but specifically do you know what is happening for FSF's *own*
projects, especially Emacs etc?  Right now CVS is down completely (not
sure how long this has been out), so what are emacs developers doing
for example?  Is the plan to keep Savannah around and operating until
GForge is up?  Who is currently doing the Savannah admin in the

It doesn't matter much to me what we do, but it seems some sort of
announcement or road-map should be made (even if it an announcement
that there is no road-map just yet) clarifying the relationship
between Savannah, Gna!, Savane, GForge.  It should be an e-mail that
goes to all project admins (since most of all of them do not subscribe
