Savannah rejects a project because it uses GPL

Have you actually read that?  There are no requirements that
documentation must be licensed under the GFDL.

   Sebastian Wieseler seems the keenest promoter of FDL among the
   project reviewers, but can you see for yourself in the tracker that
   his messages about it have recently changed from a suggestion to an
   instruction. If it really is all his doing, hopefully other
   savannah-hackers will speak out and rethink how much unreviewed
   action one person can take.

Now you are trying to blame this on one person, without a single shred
of evidence.  Please, just cut it out.  Sebastian is a nice person,
and the promotion of the GFDL is a _good_ thing.  The only topic that
one needs to rethink is your actions which are simply a knee jerk
reaction without any evidence.  You are extrapolating from a a couple
of messages, you have no clue what actually happened, neither do I.
Instead of making baseless accusations, how about going directly to
the source and see what actually happened in a _poilite_ fashion?
