It has been a long time, I know, but it has taken nearly that long for the
FSF sysadmins to get the bare-minimal infrastructure in place (i.e., just
the scripts).

It might, and although it would only need a small amount of code for the
front-end, it's a different story for inserting the correct files in
2,000+ projects' CVSROOT directories.

It's not an inconvenience, not at all, I run projects myself and totally
understand that these basics are needed.

I will adjust your projects' CVSROOT/loginfo to send commit emails to the
above address now. Can you let me know if things look OK?

If you can spare the time, we could use the help.

Was that perhaps instead FSF associate members?  If so, I'm too sure, but
someone at address@hidden might be able to help you.

If you would like to sponsor any Savannah work you do not need to be
affiliated with the FSF or GNU, you just need to be human, AFAIK ;)

Gna! is run by Loic Dachary (the person who started GNU Savannah) and
Mathieu Roy (the person who loves and cares for the Savane software: what
we use here at Savannah).  And they're definately friends! :)
