If my argument is not persuasive, just ask yourself when is the last time
someone from outside send the project an awesome feature pull request.
There is no traffic in Savanah. It is own by a limited number of people
like up-scale exclusive fan club.

But you do know that the odd to succeed in the fork under any person's name
in Github is extremely low given the fact that Bison is mature.

There is few things you can do with LALR(1) or GLR. The future improvement
of Bison lies in usabilities and documentation. That requires a lot of back
and forth in communication, user's expressing their ideas easily and freely
and sharing their experimental work in a public place. Savanah is **NOT**
an ideal place to share your thought and experimental branch easily.

BTW, only communism doesn't trust in ordinary people's vote or democracy.
Thus, it sticks to whatever policy written by dictators. When the policy
doesn't work to improve freedom of software modification, why not change

FSF's argument against Github is illogical.
