Dear Free Software friends,

A self organized development hosting facility, Gna!, is available to all Libre Software developpers and users at It was created in January 2004 and is offering the same services as Savannah ( and SourceForge (

Philosophically, Gna! follows the lead of the Free Software Foundation. Projects hosted on Gna! will be distributed under licensing terms compatible with each other so that they can be mixed freely. Running these projects on your own machine will not require any non-free software.

The self organized side of Gna! means that it is run by its users. Anyone is welcome to contribute to the maintainance of the hardware and software platform. Entering the Gna! maintainers team can happen within the hour : propose yourself, answer support requests if you can, provide a patch to implement the feature you want. No contribution will be ignored or discarded : if you make a mistake we rely on you to fix it.

Because Gna! is philosophically and technically compatible with Savannah, we started to implement an import/export procedure so that projects can move freely between Gna! and Savannah. The compromission of Savannah last year showed that it is critical to have many Free Software development facilities where projects can be backed up easily.

Happy Hacking,

Vincent Caron, Loic Dachary, Mathieu Roy.
