It is a fork of an old version. Existence of this version hasn't helped
a bit when we tried to get our data out of sf.net.

It would have been different if we had used the open source version
*and* hosted that ourselves. You only have a 100% guarantee that
you get the data out of the tracker if the data live on your own
disks (and you have good backup of these disks).
