Savane is an early fork of the SourceForge software, aimed at mass hosting for free software projects. It powers public forges such as GNU Savannah and Gna!, as well as internal development sites.

After years of evolution, Savane is now being rewritten. This talks will discuss the technologies in use, and the design goals to face the new opportunities and threats to free software.
