Hi Sylvain,

Thanks for writing.

    I wonder if we sometimes forward you Savannah project submission whose
    author didn't really mean to make his project dubbed GNU. 

I have wondered that too.  We have gotten quite a few requests in the
past week or two.  Many of the projects seem fairly obscure.  Not that I
have anything against them, or think we shouldn't evaluate them, but I
think it would be good to explain a little more up front what it means
to be GNU.

I can imagine a couple things to do (not mutually exclusive):

1) make the default selection be "choose one", instead of "Official GNU

2) explain, probably on a separate page that is linked, the implications
   of offering to be a GNU project.  I can send you some text, or maybe
   we should just put it on (so we can maintain it) and you
   can link to it.

3) require people to fill out a simple cgi form to offer their software
   -- the same form we send them now in email.  It is logistically
   impossible to put a cgi on (long story), but I imagine
   that you can write one for savannah with no trouble.

What do you think?
