When I search that error message on the web, plenty of those instances
come up and it seems as a rule to be a server side filesystem
permissions problem. So I think the right people to contact are the
savannah sysadmins.

What you in a way did by opening an issue [1]. However you might want to
re-ping the sysadmins [2]. (I can only guess that being a non-profit
syadmin is the same as my sysadmin experience, but only more of the
same: the open tickets count is only ever increasing, a *friendly* nudge
is sometimes required :-/ )
