Savannah doesn't offer great reliability or support, at least to judge by the frequency with which the GNU Emacs and GNU Arch projects have been unable to access various services on Savannah, including mailing lists and CVS.
I also wonder if Savannah poses security risks. They've been successfully cracked (ISTR more than once) in the last couple of years, and took 6-10 weeks to get back to normal. This makes them reluctant to make minor variations in their established procedures for the convenience of projects. For example, it took a couple of months for GNU Arch to arrange sftp access so that they could host the Arch project in an Arch repository (Arch can use sftp but not plain ssh as a transport).
SunSITE.dk does provide reliable service and timely support. XEmacs has been very happy with it. But Martin v. Loewis apparently hasn't had the same good experience with negotiating with them, and at least some negotiation and relationship maintenance is necessary---it's a closer, more personal relationship than with SF or Savannah. In particular for Subversion support (I was told they allow it on a case by case basis, and once success is demonstrated they plan to offer it in general). As I say, we've been happy with SunSITE, but the amount of effort is basically the same as if we ran our own repository, just directed more toward "vendor relations" and away from "sys admin" (which suits us).
FWIW, XEmacs has moved or reorganized CVS repositories five times since 1999. Although it's not all in the PEP, if you add the discussion on this list Martin has covered the important issues we encountered or worried about.
