Savannah rejects a project because it uses GPL

   Requiring a certain license is just a stupid thing to begin
   with. The requirement should be that it's free (or you can add the
   extra requirement that it should be GPL-compatible like
   has, that's also useful because you then share all code).

The GFDL is a free license, so your comment makes no sense.  Savannah
only allows for free licenses, a perfectly valid requirement.

   But if somebody wants to release his documentation under the BSD
   license, I don't see any reason why that should be forbidden by

It isn't forbidden on Savannah, it is explcitly allowed.
