I didn't think we're in the business of being a sourceforge alternative
nor do I think we want to be or have the resources to do that.
When Mike McGrath opened up Fedora Hosted, I think he specifically
made that point -- but ISTR it was more in the context of, "we don't
want to end up hosting a bunch of dead code." Sourceforge, AFAIK,
allows a project to live on indefinitely, whereas we thresh through
our hosted projects and, with prior notification to the maintainers,
release projects that are dead or unmaintained:
