Savannah now has 12 mirrors covering 8 countries and 4 continents!

To take advantage of these, we setup a GeoIP-based nearest-mirror redirection system. The old URL (without redirection) is still available at . ...

SVN upgrade
     posted by Beuc, Tue Dec 16 19:21:50 2008 - 0 replies

We upgraded subversion from v1.4 to v1.5.
Let us know if there's any problem.

If you want to upgrade the repository from fsfs2 to fsfs3, we can do that for you - open an authenticated support request stating so.

Thanks again to for the packages. https certificates

We've switched to https certificates instead of the previously self-signed certificated. offers an alternative way to deliver https certificates based on a web of trust - and their software is GPL'd. More information at

Webpages replication
     posted by Beuc, Wed Aug 20 09:37:50 2008 - 1 reply

All webpages now immediately synchronize to and on CVS commit. Previously this wasn't installed for all projects, and some group type (such as translation teams) didn't update to the right place.

On other news we upgraded the Linux VServer kernel :)

Planned short downtime
     posted by Beuc, Wed May 28 23:14:05 2008 - 2 replies

Within the next few days (this will be precised), Savannah will experience a short interruption for some hardware replacement (RAM).

     posted by Beuc, Sat May 17 23:18:52 2008 - 1 reply

There was downtime for around 2 hours today, mostly because of a fsck after a reboot.

The cause of the interruption appears to be:
- Numerous archzoom requests triggering an increased number of disk-hungry tla processes.
- Concurrent web crawlers indexing these pages.
- Made worse by a => site-wide redirection earlier this week.

tla is temporarily disabled and the load has returned to normal. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
