I know see technical reasons for does not uses Github, I think that Stallman says is respectable, but it is not the last word, it says that private company are evil!!, It's like saying that a knife is evil, with a knife you can to do good actions (save lifes) or bad actions (take lives), everything depends on who is used, I know many private companies that make large donations and corrupt nonprofit organizations. 

Can this great project ignore this,
Agree with Mario and Stallman. I believe that Savannah has a great
environment for development of GNU Health

1) It belongs to the FSF and the community, not to a private company.
Probably this is the most important one.

2) We've been hosting GNU Health there since 2011, and so far, no
Luis, IMHO yes there is a problem, I think missing more developers, translators and testers, simply passing this project to bitbucket or github will explosively increase the collaborating community
because I have found many more bugs than should exist and this occurrs because missing help, solve bugs and discuss them is easier in Github, Savannah require knows another plattform, that little number of developers wants to know.

3) We have tasks, bugs, mercurial repos, news, release of official
packages, ...

Oscar, I also think that there is room for improvement in Savannah, that
provides greater flexibility. We can just talk to the savannah hackers.
Luis, you have a nice and good project but there are missing hands that help us, you can not save the world alone :|

I think is the time for all community open the mind
We were talking with Chris Zimmerman about the possibility use of the
existing (and initial) Sourceforge page for GNU Health for community
projects, that some of them can later be added to the official release.
We just have to be careful in not dispersing resources.

Let us know your thoughts.
