	Yes, this is a pity. Savannah[1] is going well (thanks to all the 
team taking care of savannah) and I suspect a lot of project will move in 
the next few weeks to the Savannah.

	I hope that a lot of project will be part of the GNU project and 
extend the Free Software community with a better understanding of the 
ethical value. 

	Regarding the Linux Kernel version control software (I don't name 
it for not having a thread on the subject ;-), have you seen that arch[2] 
(mainly Tom Lords) is running into troubles with money and funding ?
