Does Savannah need our help?
By S11 or sirian, Section Diaries
Posted on Mon Feb 9th, 2004 at 03:25:04 GMT
Since November 27, only one project has been added to Savannah: the Savannah administration project. 199 projects remain in the queue, though I feel this number would be larger were it not for the queue's own effect on new project submissions. Furthermore, the new Gna! has been started by Savannah developers Mathieu Roy and Loic Dachary. What's going on? Note: this diary contains baseless speculation.

 

To find out, I went fishing in the savannah-hackers mailing list archives. Here's what I found:

  • In addition to the mailing list tag "[Savannah-hackers]", almost every subject refers to Savannah, savannah.gnu.org, savannah.nongnu.org, etc. In addition, most of the thread names seem to be vague descriptions of problems people have with Savannah. This makes it somewhat hard to read.
  • Submissions of new projects are, of course, sent to this mailing list. The most eye-catching was called ShpxZG (ROT-13 to see), "to raise awareness about the weakness of popular blogging software MovableType". Unfortunately, as I recall, MT is non-free software, and therefore their MT spamming script is dependent on non-free software, which means it doesn't meet Savannah guidelines. Oh well.
  • Not helping matters in point 1, bkuhn posted about "Savannah situation". He apologized about not including the Savannah hackers more in the recovery process (you know what I mean). Mathieu Roy was still unhappy.
  • Before February, Mathieu Roy was the most frequent poster. Now, it seems to be Rudy Gevaert
  • Gna! has a `savane-dev' archive going back to 2001. But it's really the savannah-dev archive. Not sure what to make of that.

Ok, I have no instinct for web searches. See this: "At a given time only one person can be in charge of approving or rejecting projects submitted to Savannah. The /admin/ interface is not fit for concurrent access. The user assigned to this task is the one in charge. It is his responsibility to find someone else before leaving :-)".

It's an open task. Happy hacking!

Shpx CUC!
Those overworked FSF sysadmins can handle everything.
I'm going to add my project to the Gna! queue instead.
You people obsess too much about security.

[new] Savannah is down again (#2)

(User Info)

Savannah went down yesterday, March 16 2004, just as I was going to commit my changes. Today it's still down. I checked www.gnu.org, and it's down too. fencepost.gnu.org is up, I can ssh there, but I cannot access savannah even from there.

Thank you for mentioning Gna! I guess I'll have to move there if the situation doesn't improve.

[new] I read gnu-friends.org a lot more than I post. (#6)
by a member of the hurd (#-1) on Mon Nov 15th, 2004 at 05:35:05 GMT

I read gnu-friends.org a lot more than I post. Sure, I post occasionally (and have submitted stories in the past), but I figure that my biggest contribution to the signal-to-noise ration is to simply keep my mouth shut when I don't have much to say. However, I _do_ try to contribute to the site, by meticulously rating all of the comments I read. I try to give ratings intelligently, and hope that this will help guide later readers to the more insightful posts.
