Perhaps. Somebody would need to research the precise migration procedure. I once tried to move the Python CVS to Sunsite (or its successors), and gave up after half a year of getting nowhere; I'm personally not keen on repeating such an experience.
I'm with you. SF is a devil we know. If we don't stick with them (and it looks like that's not an option if we want to switch to svn soon), then I say we move it to svn.python.org, where we already have a server set up and running. If we need more volunteers, well the community has always stepped up before and I'm sure it will when we come asking again.
Actually, it's a good idea to /always/ be soliciting for help. People get burned out and busy and I'd love to have a bullpen of volunteers that gets constantly refreshed.
I guess my point in suggesting a company to do the hosting was to overcome any issues with people getting burned or tired of administration.
The PSF does have a reasonable budget, so why not use it to maintain the infrastructure needed for Python development and let a company do the administration of the needed servers and the importing of the CSV and tracker items into their systems ?
