I don't believe this is directly against Savannah policies, though,
somewhat unpleasant.

Also we have no control over already approved projects which authors'
might have changed their mind, or have never expressed the intent to
release their project under a non-free license.

The only wiki page related to this I've found, states: "If your
software is also available under a non-free license, please don't
advertise this on Savannah."

So what do you people think?
