As stated on the Savannah website (
"The space given to you on this server is given for the expressed purpose of
advancing free software that can run in free operating systems, documenting
such software, or creating free educational textbooks".
With this policy, we ensure code hosted on Savannah promote the GNU philosophy
( http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/philosophy.html ) .
more details about specific issues relating to the 'ethical repository
criteria' can be found on the Savannah Wiki pages:
You are welcomed to quote text from those resources as well.

I humbly think Savannah is currently in no position to give advice or
suggestions to other hosting services.
