This is a classic chicken-and-egg problem, which I wanted to discuss
when I saw task #8191.  Now the ticket came to webmasters.

To get your GUG project approved, it needs to be listed at
gnu-user-groups.  To be listed there, webmasters must review the GUG's

This has several flaws:

1) The purpose of registering a project at Savannah is sometimes namely
the ability to host the group's webpage(s).  This new GUG doesn't have,
so webmasters' hands are tied, more or less.

2) Not all GUG's have webpages, some may need a Savannah project for a
mailing list, or the trackers.  Although unlikely, that's a valid case.

3) Neither webmasters nor Savannah hackers can ensure that the pages at will always comply with the rules.

I'm not sure what's the right thing to do, but it is clear that we have
a problem that has to be solved somehow.
