SourceForge provides the following services:

	* mailing list
	* CVS
	* project management
	* bug tracking
	* discussion forums
	* shell/ftp access

Can you get back ALL of the information relating to all of these facets
of project development? Even the project management, mailing list
management, bug tracking and discussion forums? I mean without scraping
HTML screens? If so, bravo, forget I opened my mouth. 

If not, I think that there is some reason to be concerned that in the
middle of a project where you depend on these services they could
disappear with the metadata necessary to rebuild them.
