The reason that attending to user requests for Savannah is slow
is that there are not enough volunteers doing it.  Would someone like
to volunteer to help run Savannah?  Can you find someone else who
would like to do this?


It's hard to volunteer for an undefined task and unspecified obligations. What sort of work is lacking in manpower on Savannah? And, should creating new repositories for a member project require manpower in the first place? What is Savannah written in?

It is curiously difficult to find Savane's source code. This does not seem complete, and some of it is outright terrifying:

I'm also hoping there is a strong vetting process for potential administrators on something as seemingly critical as Savannah.
