Hello everyone!

As some of you already know at the GNU Project, we use GNATS as a bug
tracking system. We want to integrate it into our new web-based
collaboration environment called Savannah.

I know that gnatsweb helps in creating, viewing, editing PRs, but what
about GNATS administration?

Is there plans to develop such interface? (either inside gnatsweb or a
completely independent one).

We need one for Savannah, so we are willing to join forces and develop
one that will help everybody but that can be customized for Savannah.

Who is working on such beast?


I don't know if you found it yourself, but there is actually a fairly well-working web-interface for Gnats administration, developed by Mike Sutton, described in the mailing list archives. Have a look at

I got it working very easily, and it performed quite well during some, admittedly limited, testing. I does seem to have certain problems with blank lines in config files (leading, for example, to the addition of no-name categories), but these should be fairly straightforward to fix. Multiple database support should be fairly easy to add by some advanced cutting and pasting from Gnatsweb. It could also be modified to work with Gnats 4 fairly easily

What needs to be addressed is security.

Would any of the Savannah people be interested in picking up this and developing it further (I am assuming here that Mr. Sutton has no objections) ?
