Mark already explained about the web and CVS.

You can find more documentation at:

If you have further problems, contact address@hidden

It is up to the maintainers, but of course if the software is part of
the GNU Project, we would love to host it at Savannah, that helps in
several ways including giving a sense of a unified GNU system instead
of scattered GNU Tools.

So we like to encourage the maintainers to migrate to Savannah, and
the savannah-hackers are working on making the transition painless.

There is a mailing list for reporting bugs in the FSD, I sent a copy
of my initial message there, but one person replied that they would do
it if I send the entry, so I don't really know if it makes any sense
to have that bug reporting email address, so if you can send this
entry I really would appreciate it.

Thanks for your help making GNU better!
