ok i should make few things clear. it is not out there yet. i just picked
out the space; sourceforge was mentioned early on, so i thought that was
the right place to host wily so that distros can pick copies, and it is
more visible. i don't follow portalitics all that well; i assumed it was
still the quintessential open source portal. i realize va-whatever is in
hard times, but i did not know sourceforce is now portal-a-non-grata.
what happened? what alternatives are there? if there is another really
strong opensource bazaar, i'd use that. or i can just leave it where
it is until later...

> Why not

um, i thought savannah was for gnu projects. wily does not come with gnu 
copyleft, does not follow gnu coding standards, not is it ever likely to. :)

cheers... oz
