It is quite confusing on many levels for an outsider.

To my current understanding Savannah's software is called Savane, but when I
search savane in projects I only get 2 outdated failed rewrite attempts.

So it seems the project main page of Savane is

But then there are not only 3 versioning systems in use there: git,
subversion, cvs - they are also not in sync or lead to the real up to date

In the 'Development Tools' section:

The first 'Git Repository' - 'Browse Source Repository'
last edit was 2012!

Only when you click on 'Git Repository' leads to a page
where is stated that there are 4 different git repositories for the same

GNU Savannah
Sav!  (what is this???)
Savannah's Savane (whats the difference to GNU Savannah?)
Savannah external test suite (ok..)
So I have to clone all to see on which people really work?

Why not add some notes beside the source links in that they are outdated? Or a
comment beside the links in the Development Tools section?

Ok, finally I seemed to found the right and cloned it, but then:
file ChangeLog last entry is 2007-10-05. WTF?
Ok, I look into NEWS and there is: 2019-01-09 3.4 (ok, wipe sweat from
forehead :-)

Then there are 
grep -rin | wc -l

references to a mysterious domain that does not exist (anymore).

Then I tried
, but the link to the box does not exist.

I had good experience using vagrant for local testing. Maybe provide a
Vagrantfile for easy tryout Savane?
- A vagrant base box
- some apt-get (as you prefer deb/ubuntulike distris)
- pull/clone savane
- some setup shell commands
- (re)start mysql + apache services
- done

I also detected some security issues with current savane. Where to report?
