FSF is one very specific voice.

As long as sourceforge is good for us, I see no problem. Note that we really only use them for subversion and the download service, so we would have almost no migration cost.

I can imagine sourceforge has quite some bills to pay, so they need a way to generate income, we cannot blame them for that. Savannah looks dead to me (broken links everywhere), and launchpad is a really cluttered interface I (as an IT person) still don't understand how to navigate. Anyway, launchpad has also a commercial company behind it paying the bills at the moment, so they might do things like adding commercials in mailings lists also some time in the future.

In the latest issue of the Free Software Foundation's bulletin (Issue
16, May 2010) there is an interesting article about the
appropriateness of using Sourceforge to host GNU projects. They make
the point that by keeping their service behind a web interface they
avoid being asked for the code they use. SourceForge is not running on
GNU software since they were acquired by VA Software who forked the
code off in two branches, free and not free.

I thought that this might be something to consider and discuss. There
is an article on the Savannah blog at

Just a thought, Duncan
