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!
