I think universities will find Savannah very useful, but it is better to
have them part of the community and help develop projects, including hosting
mirrors of Savannah. The funding is more likely to come from research
granting entities at this point rather than the universities themselves,
since they are generally users of funding not suppliers of funding.

Cyberspace Policy Institute at George Washington University has recently
committed to sponsor some FreeSoftware projects for research grants during
the coming year. The question, now, is which projects to sponsor. I am
talking to Richard and others to create a priority list. There are a lot of
good candidates, including Savannah and a Virtual ID system, but no
decisions have been made. If you have other suggestions, please let me know.
