Hi list,

So apparently I'm the only project member Uwe could reach. Well, I'll
try to help :)

Just so you know, I did some gcmd hacking back in 2010-2011 (to fix a
few bugs that affected me). I also offered Piotr to help him with the
website, which had not been updated for more than a year before that
(despite several stable releases). As a result, I am a "member" of the
project on Savannah (not an admin), with access to the gcmd-web
repository only. But since the code is in a public Git repository, we
can move it anywhere without much trouble.

I'll try to contact the Savannah administration shortly. Hopefully they
can promote me to admin, which would allow me to add other people to the

With Uwe we talked about hosting the project. Savannah seems quite
outdated to me. I'd rather move to GitHub, which has a much better Git
interface and bug tracker, and which can also host static websites like
the current one. I created a "gcmd" organisation there
(https://github.com/gcmd). But I don't want to take that decision on my
own; so how would you guys feel about moving to GitHub?
