As most of you know, we have now provided the RCS
files for the projects
for those of you that want to work independently.  For
project FOO, you
can find the RCS files at:


has md5sums for all the files in that directory.

We are working today to finish securing various parts
of the savannah
system infrastructure, and hope to have the software
running again by the
end of the day on this Friday.  (Although there could
be delays, we have
set this as a very serious deadline.)

We have discovered many possible ways that someone
could have used to gain
root access illegitimately to the system.  These
problems were primarily
due to configuration issues and bugs in various custom
scripts installed
on the system.  We are completing now an audit of the
Savannah software
before placing it back into production.  We have also
used chroot
environments and other methods to tighten how much
access is provided to
the system for project management.

We appreciate your patience and will work hard to meet
our targeted roll
out for tomorrow.
