Moving from non-GNU to GNU (for savannah administrators):

  • Change project type for the Savane project.

    This is in the left-hand menu, Site Administration / Main Page -> Browse Groups List. Change to GNU and hit the update button. Do not use the icons at the top (check mark and wrench+screwdriver).

  • FTP uploads to ftp|alpha.gnu.org are done by the maintainer.

    Contact is ftp-upload@gnu.org, maintainers should follow http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Automated-FTP-Uploads.html.

  • Project admins should change their download area to {alpha|ftp}.gnu.org.

    The change is made by editing the download http: address in Main > Administer > Select Features from the project page. It's just a matter of pointing to the right location, no system action is done (no cron jobs, etc.).

    GNU projects have access to the Savannah download area, but ordinarily shouldn't use it.

  • Launch a curl to update www.gnu.org/software/PROJECT -- the appropriate command from mgt:/root/administration/curl.txt.

    This will also automatically create a redirection from www.nongnu.org/PROJECT to www.gnu.org/software/PROJECT. It works via a web service at www.gnu.org maintained by GNU sysadmin.
