Welcome to Gna!

This site is a central point for development, distribution and maintenance of Libre Software (Free Software) projects.

Gna! provides Source Code Repositories (CVS, GNU Arch, Subversion), Download Area, Web Pages, Mailing-Lists and Trackers (Bugs, Task, Support Requests, Patches). If you would like to use these facilities to host your project, then go to the Register new project menu entry that is displayed after login.

Most of the documentation is included in the pages themselves, the place where you are most likely to need it. If you want more information, take a look at the Cookbook for howtos or at the In Depth Savane User Guide for issues related to the web interface. If it is not helpful enough to you, fill a Support Request.

If you want to learn more about the Gna! project, its contributors, its policy or its history, please consult the About Gna! page. To be kept in the loop, we suggest that you subscribe to the low traffic list named news.

The hardware of Gna! is provided by FSF France and the bandwidth is offered by Bearstech. The platform is powered by the Savane software.

Everything at Gna! but the mail system was upgraded to Debian Jessie. Let us know if you think something is wrong.

Some spam was also cleaned-up.
Cheers! SSL certificate renewed

While we were quick to patch the Heartbleed attack, it took a little bit more time and administrative work to renew our and certificates.

It is now a single and freshly issued multi-domain certificate issued by Comodo via Gandi. Although your preferred web browser will automatically trust it, you're welcome to verify by yourself. The SHA fingerprint should read 94:69:D1:5B:B6:B0:64:08:E3:08:97:3B:6A:9F:5F:9E:54:22:D1:D5.

Heartbleed status and measures
     posted by beuc, Wed Apr 9 09:47:29 2014 - 2 replies

Gna! was patched to address the recent openssl "heartbleed" vulnerability.

Gna! has been running a vulnerable version since up to 2 months, and the attacker could silently retreive information from part of the system memory, including credentials and private https keys.

As a safety measure, we removed the current sessions (so you need to reconnect), and are in the process of renewing the https certificate.
Changing your password is also recommended.

mail subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sat Mar 8 23:02:17 2014 - 0 replies was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit.
As usual, let us know if there's any issue.

From the sysadmin's side, this was the last major system upgrade.
Now maybe we can go back to the programmer's side and think about fusionning with FusionForge :)

About one hour ago the service became unresponsive. This was quickly detected and a reboot was issued. Everything is back to normal.

Apparently this is due to a memory leak in one of the new daemons.
We're investigating!

download+homepage subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sun Mar 2 21:53:20 2014 - 9 replies & was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit. Let us know if there's any issue.

As previously mentionned the system now uses configuration management allowing automated reinstalls, and we even share the recipes - 100%-free-hosting spirit :)

Also we fixed so a few of you will receive the first Gna! news by e-mail after a long hiatus :]

svn+cvs subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sat Mar 1 16:46:40 2014 - 1 reply

The VCS subsystem was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit. Let us know if there's any issue.

In addition, the Gna installation is becoming fully automated, and reinstallable in matter of minutes! Feel free to comment on the in-progress Puppet recipes available at
