Hello all Savannah users!

I have posted a support ticket, which is actually a subject that I better
discuss with Savannah users in general (and not only with the site

lot of questions.

If some of you can answer - at least few of those - it will be very helpful.

There are many more questions, but that will suffice for a start...

Wikis, so other "newbies" will be able to follow it easily (I am good with
