Should we move the project?

    You probably heard that Sourceforge is now blocking IP adresses from certain
    "rogue states". You can read more about it in this blog
    post

    I know it's not Sourceforge's fault - they did not make the US laws. But I
    don't even live in the US, and this is not my understanding of free software.
    Strictly speaking it also violates the GPL.

    So I consider moving the project to another location like launchpad or gnu
    savannah. Any opinions on this?

    A good idea! I don't see any real advantages Sourceforge would offer in
    comparison to other platforms.

    Sourceforge has reacted.

    I just removed the block, so there is no need to move the project for now.
