Dear People,

I am the Business Manager for the Free Software Foundation in Boston.
An FSF employee has registered a Savannah project, "softfree".

Please approve this project as swiftly as possible.  The employee did
not realize that projects need to go through an approval process, and
so left setting up the CVS tree until just before a deadline.  I am
trying to meet a deadline of 5:00 pm Friday, Eastern US time.

I am sorry about this last-minute drama.  Thank you in advance for
your understanding and quick fix.

Best Regards,


Lisa M. Goldstein           address@hidden

Subject: CVS for book on software freedom

I registered a project on Savannah for my book, `Software Freedom: an
Introduction', under the heading `softfree'.

I thought I would then be able to put the files immediately into CVS
where you could download the Texinfo, Info, HTML, and DVI files by

  cvs -z3 address@hidden:/cvsroot/softfree co softfree

but it turns out that the project must be reviewed by the Savannah
administrators before I can start it and commit the files.  (Nowadays,
this moderation is a good idea, but I had not thought of it.  Shows my
heritage.  Without such security, a DOS attack would be trivially easy
for anyone with a fast connection.)  So I am waiting on the OK.

I have already got the instructions on what to do from and have set things up at my end.

The only serious problem with the Savannah site that I have come
across so far is that the Texinfo source for the Savannah FAQ fails to
format.  Fortunately, I can still read the Info as if it were a plain
text file.

More after the administrators OK the project and I can import my files.
