Yes, we're keeping as a redirect to the package's former website at for the time being.  We're planning on creating a new website for STUMP, at which point we'll arrange for the redirect to be disabled.

I'll just note that the STUMP homepage is registered to be the standard project address but then that address produces a <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url="> which results in landing on a remote home page.

Which is all to say that at the moment at least there is no html page management to be done and therefore the CVS web page management is not being used at all.  Not that this information changes anything here.

The Savannah code was written without any ability not to have a web page.  And the web page meta-refresh to a different location is done completely outside of anything Savannah knows anything about.  It's being done over at the side of things controlled by the GNU web team.

So even though you are not using the feature it can't be turned off with the present Savannah code.  That may be something that will be improved at some point in the future.

Thanks for your patience. We have decided that we will host our web pages here and so will keep CVS access after all.

I'll consult with my fellow maintainers at our Friday meeting and get back to you.

CVS is used for web pages; will you maintain your web pages somewhere else?

I'm one of the maintainers of STUMP.  We maintain our code with Git and have never used CVS.  I tried disabling the CVS and CVS Web Browsing through the project administration page, but the CVS repository details are still showing up on the project web page.  How can we get these details removed?
