Indeed, in the Savannah reports, I have seen a lot of "checkout
complete", but no error :/

Well, Savane is designed to work by remotely accessing the database
(which means there are several "backend" installations), and thus the
Right Way would be to install the Savane backend at; it
will then update the websites depending on whether they are activated
in the database. Since the process is ran directly at the target
machine, the error handling can be done precisely.

I think that's the way it is done at Gna! (with separated
from the other parts of the system). I can ask more information on
that point if you want.
