If that adds weight to your request, another project which I had
intended to host on savannah, also depends on arch for version control.

I too have read through the bug logs and admin documentation and tried
the suggestions. So, if I can do anything to help test as an
unprivileged user, I'd be glad to.

Right; the window of opportunity for savannah to act as a hosting
service for arch-controlled projects has been closed for too long. I'd
hate to see people resort to sf.net for arch-controlled projects just
because they offer working sftp and savannah doesn't.

As I'm not a debian developer and have no other token of trustworthiness
to show, I volunteer as an unprivileged tester. (-:

I hope we'll get this resolved soon.
