Tasks And Bugs
gNewSense developers use Savannah as their project management system. All gNewSense development teams use the Savannah issue trackers to report and track the status of tasks and bugs related to their respective fields. This is why joining the Artwork Team requires that you create an account on Savannah.
When submitting a new task or bug to the trackers, be sure to use the appropriate category or item group for them: artwork.
