Some investigation into Savannah

Hi!

For everybody that still would like to see a SourceForge.net-like system (Savannah is a fork of SF 2.0) adapted for blender.org project accounts, I just thought I would share a small (not-too-difficult-to-find-out) discovery.

Judging from http://savannah.gnu.org/docs/admin.php , Savannah seems to have quite a big (good?) Info manual, which might be a good starting point for people wanting to find out more about (setting up) Savannah. The project page is at http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/savannah/ .

I'd like to discuss it a bit further. I don't have much experience myself (besides wanting to migrate everything (including stuff I have on SourceForge.net) to http://savannah.gnu.org/ ), so I'd like to hear more from people that already tried to use (i.e., install) it.

Proposal: how about a Savannah setup at http://savannah.blender.org/ that would be open to sub-projects regarding the Blender code base as well as experimental work on Blender? I don't know definitively whether artist services will be at the same place (blender.org) like the coder services, so it could also host 3D artwork and related projects.

Yep. We're looking at the SF code to implement projects here. I've got two guru's who will look into that.

I still need to think over how exactly the whole Blender project will be managed. At least I want to have an 'official' foundation release, but also host several experiments or forks...
