Ok, I really tried it. But with all imagination - the only smell my python
reminds me of is pringles cheese & onion ...

Primarily I don't care where a project is hosted, if has a high availability
and some sophisticated interfaces to maintain it. Savannah seems to be a
sourceforge-fork, so the interfaces are likely to be the same. I don't know
anything about sf's availabilty but I haven't had any problems accessing
them, from savannah I have no experience at all (but I guess they have a good
But personally I've two points that make me savannah.gnu.org a little
"suspect". First the colors. I really, really don't like them. The whole page
looks like mud, pale brown boxes "nailed" together. Though sf has more ads,
it looks much brighter and more open - and I can read the text better.
Another, more imporant point, is "gnu" itself. Yes, I *know* open source
leads to better and more trustworthy code, and I do use lot's of tools they
maintain, but I consider myself more as "Mercutio" then "Friar Lawrence" -
and the gnu guys are some sort of priests.
In the end it probably won't matter where it's really going (and i won't
complain (i don't even have the right to) if it moves to savannah) but just
very personally I had a better feeling to see it at sf.

Jim, the packages are up now. I had to resubmit pykde, and appended a -1
suffix after the package name - just take the larger one of both.
