I don't want to be paranoid, but are we putting any important information into SourceForge that we are not backing up elsewhere? I mean okay, we've all got CVS dumps, but if it went away (DOJ antitrust suit...) would we have backups of our patches, bugs, wish lists and so forth? I hope that's a criteria in deciding what services to move to SourceForge. I am in the business of preserving investments in data and of telling customers to avoid software that does not keep them in complete control of their data. SF makes me nervous that way....
SF has a way to get a nightly snapshot of the CVS tree. We should suggest that they provide snapshots (in XML of course!) of the bugs database too.
Note that I have no bandwidth left to communicate to SF folks so this is up to the user community. (I'm also very optimistic and trusting in nature. :-)
