There are a couple of pieces missing from the puzzle:

1) Who makes technical decisions about Savannah, and what is the
   process to make them?

   In other words, who is the "Savannah Architect"?

   That person (or group of persons) should:

   - decide when, how and what features to implement/enable.

   - coordinate the work of all the people you mentioned
     (i.e. volunteers, contractors, staff, etc.) in regards to
     Savannah.  Ok, this mixes architecture with management, but for
     this case I think it is no big deal.

   - work with FSF sysadmin staff to fit Savannah into FSF IT
     infrastructure's guidelines.

2) Will Savannah run 'savane', GForge, or ?
   This is important (among other reasons) to be able to choose the
   skill set for the volunteers and contractors.

   Actually, I would expect this answer from the Architect(s).

I definitely disagree, Savannah is not nearly 'back to normal', there
are still important issues to be resolved, besides the one I described
above, Elfyn described others in his email.
