Welcome to Savannah, the software forge for people committed to free software:

Savannah aims to be a central point for development, maintenance and distribution of official GNU software. In addition, for projects that support free software but are not part of GNU, we provide savannah.nongnu.org.

If you would like to use Savannah to host your project, then go to the Register New Project menu entry.

We strongly recommend all Savannah users subscribe to this mailing list:

  • savannah-announce: low-volume notifications of important issues and changes at Savannah.

And this mailing list is a place for Savannah users to communicate and ask questions:

  • savannah-users: help with using Savannah in general (not with a specific project).

Happy hacking!

The server hosting git services has been updated. This should resolve the OpenSSH obsolescence of SHA1 that has been seen by early adopters.

The server hosting svn, hg, and bzr is still pending. Until then the mitigation for SHA1 previously posted will still be needed. This is getting attention and will be updated as well soonest.
