It's fine by me.  Everyone has started calling the "software package that
is the GNU fork of the last-free sourceforge codebase" as simply
"savannah".  Given that's the name of the software package, it's
inevitable that people will do things like the CERN folks.

So, "" and "" are the two front runners to
replace the name ""?  Does anyone have serious
objections and/or preferences to either of them?
