I've been more tempted to have it on the sourceforge mirrors of
WinAVR, but currently don't have write access there.

I don't mind having it on savannah either, but currently, we do not
ship *any* binaries there at all.  If we'd like to start shipping
binaries there, we should make that a policy, and probably also accept
other binaries as well -- in particular Linux RPMs (provided someone
can be found to reliably produce them), as there currently doesn't
appear to be any kind of up-to-date, centralized AVR toolchain RPM
repository for Linux.  FreeBSD has probably the best position for AVR
development, with the ports collection that can be easily held
up-to-date, and a well-established mirror infrastructure.  I think
some Linux distributions (Gentoo, Debian) also at least have a working
packaging for the AVR tools though I cannot say anything about how
recent they are being kept.  But the `mainstream' RPM-based Linux
distributions appear to have no working AVR toolchain, and nobody in
sight who might arrange for this.

Similar considerations apply to avr-libc, and to GCC and binutils.

Well, I've got a different idea?  How about using the generic AVR
"super-project"'s download area for this?  (avr-libc Cc'ed for this)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
