Today, I have logged in to non-GNU Savannah to check out the project submission guideline (normally I use the GNU instance). After tinkering with some settings, I found that non-GNU Savannah's theme settings does not work as expected: the server seems to ignore any non-default color theme that I have set it to.

Exact steps to reproduce:

  1. Log in to the non-GNU Savannah instance.
  2. Go to My Account Conf on the right panel.
  3. Scroll down to Secondary Arrangements, and change Theme to "CodeX".
  4. Click "Update" at the bottom of the section.
  5. You will see that the page is updated to use brown CodeX theme, with a green "Success: Database successfully updated" message on the top.
  6. Go to My Account Conf on the right panel again.
  7. You will see that the page is now back to using the default yellow Savannah theme.
  8. Scroll down to the Secondary Arrangements, you will see that the Theme is selected at "CodeX" despite the page is displayed in "Savannah" theme.

Screenshots (step 5 and 8) are also attached.


  • If you are somehow already using "CodeX" theme, substitute "CodeX" with "Cappuccino" theme in the reproduction steps.
  • This might also affect the GNU Savannah instance ( too, but I'm not able to test this yet.
