 :-) Almost exactly what I thought when I replied. And since Savannah meaning
is obscure to almost everyone, it would not be misleading. The explanation of
the name could be as follow.

 "Savannah is the terrain where gnu live. On all software is
Free Software, some GPL, some under another license. The GNU created this
universe and welcome all the software that has a GPL compatible
license, and GNU can have friends for tea. Unlike in the real world,
all software living on can become a GNU software by asking
for it to address@hidden".

 My english is not proper english but I like the idea. There would then be

 - ==
 - ==
 - == gnudist:/home/www/html/savannah/project
 - ==
 - ==
 - ==

 How does it sound ? The workload implied to actually implement this is
a matter of hours (except for mail + gnats for which I have no feedback
