You might have a good point if the maintainers supported using
savannah.  This is simple not the case.  Roland, for instance, has
recently said [1] that he mostly ignores the messages from the
savannah patch manager as it is too difficult to find the relevant
information.  (I don't know if this also excludes the bug reports that
the savannah bug manager sends to the lists as well, however.)
