Yes. I have not been back to the site for at least a week, but it was very 
hard to use it when I was trying to setup my account.

I got the feeling that there was a timer on the server and it gave me under 1 
minute to submit any given page.
 For example when I tried to change the text that appears on the first page 
(public data, I think they call it) I found that I had to write the text in 
an editor on my side,  then login and *very quickly* paste it and submit it 
on Savannah. If I typed the text into the boxes - and took some time - then 
it would tell me I was not logged-in when I tried to save/submit the page.

This happens all over the place, leading to a feeling of panic as one must 
rush through the site to get anything done.

To confirm - I am on Kubuntu 6.06. I tried both Firefox 1.5.0 and Konqueror 
3.5.2. I Have cleared the caches on both and ensured that cookies are 
acceptable from the Savannah domains. (gnu and nognu)
I also ticked the 'remember me' tickbox on the login page, but it never does.

I am a little reluctant to do this. Is it not a security issue? My project 
name is "fontypython" or "Fonty Python", perhaps that will help you.
