Approving group submissions

Of course, do not approve the package unless it actually meets our requirements; more details at HowToGetYourProjectApprovedQuickly.

As Savannah superuser, that is, do "become superuser" (in the main left hand menu bar) in the web interface:

  • Follow the 'Group Administration' link in the original submission of this tracker item.
  • Check the group name, group type, license. To be an official GNU package it must be listed in; otherwise, the package must be evaluated first. Or it can be evaluated and approved as a non-GNU package; often submitters choose "official GNU" by mistake, so please discuss with them.
  • Visit the "Approve" link (the green 'V' icon).
  • Visit the "Send new group instruction email and trigger group creation" link.
  • close the tracker item: change status to 'Done', 'Open/Closed' to 'Closed', write a comment (which will be seen by the OP).

Following that it will unfortunately take up to one hour for the cron jobs to run and the group to be fully populated: create repositories on VCS, etc.
