GNU Savannah helps thousands of teams to collaborate on Libre software and documentation. It’s a hosting platform for Free Software using only free technologies such as Git, Bzr, Mailman, OpenSSH, Apache… It hosts more than 3000 projects and is used by more 45000 users.

The architecture is based on the Savane project currently rewritten using Python/Django technologies.
