Thanks, Karl.  See below.

Hi Michael - some quick answers. Maybe others know better.

     Is there documentation how to configure or update the page?

In short, do a cvs checkout (as project member) of the "webpages
repository". The exact invocation will be shown on that page.

That is the DDD project web page, not the Savannah web page.
I've been updating these web pages.

A bit more info:

     How do I update the Latest News area?
"Submit" to submit news, then, as manager of the group,
you can "Manage" (approve) the submitted items.

There does not appear to be any way to delete news items.

     How do I search for a bug using the bug tracker?

There may be other ways.

     Why are some "fixed" bugs listed and others are not?

I'm guessing you're talking about

As shown there, Open/Closed is a separate field from Status. The default
is to show all open bugs regardless of Status. I believe.

Thanks, I didn't notice the separate option. (Not that it would be clear to me what changing the open/closed setting would do.)

     Are there instructions on how to manage bug reports?
has a brief description. Different projects like to do it differently.

Thanks. I looked for this kind of info on the Savannah main page, but there does not appear to be a link.

     Possibly unrelated:  how do I request a email alias?

Email Good guess that Savannah volunteers cannot
modify email setup :).

Again, thanks.

Happy hacking,

Michael Eager
