Newest Official GNU software Projects
  - GNU Anastasis, 2021-07-30

Welcome to Savannah, the software forge for people committed to free software: is a central point for development, maintenance and distribution of free software.

If you would like to use Savannah to host your project, then go to the Register New Project menu entry.

It's not necessary for using Savannah, but if you would like to make your project part of the GNU system, please see the GNU Software Evaluation web page. New packages are welcome in GNU.

We strongly recommend all Savannah users subscribe to this mailing list:

  • savannah-announce: low-volume notifications of important issues and changes at Savannah.

And this mailing list is a place for Savannah users to communicate and ask questions:

  • savannah-users: help with using Savannah in general (not with a specific project).

Happy hacking!
