For those not following the mailing list: Berlios will be closed at the end of this year.
We're having currently a discussion on the Developer mailing list where to move the project.
There is a high possibility that we move it to Sourceforge, still GNU Savannah and Alioth (and others that you can propose) are open to discussion until end of October.
We will export all the data including the source code, mailing list archive, bugs, feature requests.
I've accidently replied to the wrong thread, sorry for the mixup.
We want everyone to have access to the project. If there are reasons to believe that hoster platforms exclude persons interested in the project due to political or whatever reasons this will lead to exclusion from the list of the possible hosters.
This concerns mainly the repository itself and probably one discussion variant like forum or mailing list.
Also though I'd like to avoid a split of the project to different hosters I see no way to avoid it the list of hosters offering shell support and one discussion variant is already very small. In addition we will change our repository to Mercurial (except our preferred hoster does not offer it - in this case we would keep svn).
This means apart from SF we could use Alioth, Savannah, Google Code, Knowledgeforge, tigris (no mercurial).
The others are filtered because of being centered too much about either one programming language, one repository type, one single distribution, not having at least one communication variant. Also one hosting service does not allow a project like Canorus (being a music application) being hosted at all.
Exception to this are (nightly/daily) build services for specific distributions (At least Ubuntu, SuSE, Fedora, Debian offer such services).
Any more suggestions are welcome.
