Due to massive spamming of the "news" (aka forums) on savannah in recent
weeks, I've removed the UI that allows posting of comments on news
items.  In practice, it seems that this was rarely or never used
legitimately (anyone who was actually making use of it ... sorry).

Original news items can still be submitted and approved and posted as
usual, it's just replies and follow-ups which are disabled (I hope).

We'll work on deleting all the thousands of junk msgs which have
accumulated in coming days.

If we ever manage to stop spammers from signing up on savannah, and if
the feature is useful to anyone, we could reenable it.
