That's the normal (if opaque) message returned when you are not superuser in the web interface.

Does it say "johnschmidt4 logged in as superuser" in the upper left below the savannah logo, or does it say "become superuser"? I hope it is the latter. And if it does, then click that, then come back to this task page.

The Status on this task page is not related to activating the project. As I said, that is done on the separate "Group Administration" page, linked to here.

When I click "Group Administration", the error message is:

This project is not in active state

The dropdown on the task gives me the following options for status:

In Progress
Need Info
Wait Reply
Need Admin

I don't see an "Active" option here.

hi john - you have all the permissions that any of us do, so let's try to figure out what's going wrong. after you "become superuser" in the web interface, and then click the "group administration" link in this task, what do you get? (that is where the state change/activation is done.)

A new project has been registered at Savannah
This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):
