Somebody will have to explain me how RT works regarding
notifications... When I see 'From: "Peter Simons via RT"
<address@hidden>' in a From: line, I expect RT (behind new-gnu) to
forward it to the people who participated in the conversation; ah

This depends on what your concerns are.

The project is still reachable wherever it used be to reached (at
savannah.[non]gnu and www.[non], same for the mailing
lists. The download area didn't change either, it also can be reached
from savannah.gnu and savannah.nongnu.

The only thing that really changed is the label "This project is not
part of the GNU Project", which is apparently more accurate. Your
package was approved at the time Savannah was not opened to non-GNU
projects, and was classified as GNU during the opening.

If you think the package was meant to be GNU, I suggest you ask it to
be reviewed via address@hidden
