The intended purpose of Savannah accounts is working on the packages hosted here. Unused accounts may be removed with or without a notice.

This page documents criteria for automatic account removal.

Pending Accounts

Accounts that don't pass the activation procedure within 3 days are automatically removed. You can try to register again using the same name.

New Accounts

When an account is activated, but no substantial activity follows for 2 weeks, it may be removed. In order to prevent this, it's sufficient if you do anything from this list:

  • post a new item in any tracker;
  • comment on any item in any tracker;
  • actually join any group (mere requests for inclusion don't count).

(Note that the accounts whose first posts look like spam are likely to be removed manually.)
