But from my point of view, our goals are compatible but different. Or
maybe are interested in the future in hosting other
kind of "free projects" not only software? 

I think that your goals is to help only to the Free Software Community
of Developpers.

I make these question because I'm searching for a platform which can
support "free projects". But I don't have special interest that this
platform it's call or or I
only want to help in the development of this tool with this philosophy
and to develop free project on it with more people.

Don't worry, It's very clear.

If I'm not wrong, Savannah don't have nowadays other language support.

For us its very, very important the internationalization. For example we
are now using utf8 for all languages and our "Project Map" looks like
this if you select World --> Japanese (and you have the correct fonts

because maybe I am Spanish but I want to collaborate in a Japanese free
project, or in a multilanguage free project, why not.

I need to make a diagram with the differents branches and our modest
site. Maybe it's something like that:

       /----------------------- Savannah (free software/docs)
SF ----+                . . . . . .ourproject (free projects)
       |               /
       \----- debian-sf
       |               |
       \---------------\------gforge (software/docs projects)

For me it's very easy to follow the gforge branch but not so easy to
follow the Savannah branch. But my decision depends in the interest of
the different groups in "free projects" (not only software).

Personally I don't have the knowledge about Savannah and Gforge to
evaluate the proposal of Christian.
