Yes, that helps, thanks.

  But very very similar indeed.

  Compare both descriptions: which is which?

Welcome to ............., the software forge for people committed to Free 
    * We host free projects that run on free operating systems and without any 
proprietary software dependencies
This site is a central point for development, distribution and maintenance of 
Libre Software (Free Software) projects. 

Both host a list of projects:

And there are places where you can see information about both at once:

  This is confusing, specially to new users (I mean new users of Gna/Savannah). 
It seems that we have two project management projects and there seems to be no 
cause for division.

  Compare with Ubuntu's Launchpad: it is just one platform; there is no visible 
division between the program Launchpad and the project tracking portal 
  They may have some demo installations of the program Launchpad, but this is 
hidden from the user.

  Is the division Savannah/Gna an ethical one? A technical one? It would be 
helpful to have a page which explains the limits of both, and why they don't
