As you know, I will not assign my copyright to the FSF, nor to
anyone else.  All the code I write is GPL'ed.  You don't need to
own the copyright on any code in order to be able to enforce the
GPL.  (That is the beauty of the GPL: it passes most rights to
the user, plus the obligation to pass those same rights on to
the next user.)

The Savannah system is fine.  You don't need to be a GNU package
in order to be able to use Savannah.

Github is no good; it is a closed system.  If you move to github,
then I'm done.
