The svusers group is one of the special groups. The groups that start with sv are Savannah internal use groups for permission control of user shell accounts.  There are others too.

I don't know where this would be linked to such that someone would even know those exist.  Many URLs are built as dynamically created actions and the files URL is one of them.  I don't know how the _158052 user, a now deleted account, would have located those. If there is a problem perhaps the problem is that those were somehow visible.

In summary these should not be visible. Nor removed.

The group seems special, I'm reluctant to remove it; however, it's private now, so there shouldn't be many problems.

This project is permission denied. No messages found about svusers. There are probably no areas opended.
A dead-end download redirect excists:
Can this project be removed?

This is a message I normally would send:

Are you willing to remove this empty Savannah project?:

Here you can ask an admin (I am not an admin) to remove the project:
(You will need to login to Savannah and confirm with a non-anonymous comment.)

This will clean up Savannah a little.
Thanks for your cooperation.
