  From what I remember, it was decided the GNU toolchain (minus DejaGnu)
that the savannah infrastructure was insufficient. Some of the others
here probably remember better. GNU projects are different when it's not
part of the toolchain. My Gnash project uses savannah heavily. But you

  So maybe the discussion point is if we want to consider DejaGnu part
of the toolchain, and use the same infrastructure as the other tools. I have
no problem with that. DejaGnu doesn't change much, and there were only 2
