Unfortunatly, the policies for the inclusion of a work on Savannah
aren't particularly apparent (or even agreed upon by the people
reviewing works for inclusion in Savannah.)


doesn't list GPLv2 or later as a requirement, nor does it list GFDLed
documentation as a requirement either:


http://savannah.gnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=4303 is the news item
on it, apparently.

In any case, it's their server, their rules; good luck finding another
hosting location.

The sheer ponderousness of the panel's opinion ... refutes its thesis
far more convincingly than anything I might say. The panel's labored
effort to smother the Second Amendment by sheer body weight has all
the grace of a sumo wrestler trying to kill a rattlesnake by sitting
on it--and is just as likely to succeed.
