Thanks for the info.

Perfect!  Just what is needed.

Apache will need some configuration for it.  But this part I think I
understand fairly well.  So I am not concerned about that part.  And
that part is also very easy to modify as we go.

I will look at those.

When you say resemble Savannah's tracker do you mean the gnats bug
tracker web pages?  Or something different?

I don't think it needs to match a particular part of Savane.  But it
would be good if it had a nice theme that made it fit into the overall
Savannah site.  A person can get whiplash if the colors and layout are
radically different between pages.
