There, we said it again. ;-)

I'm with you.  I only mention forking as a last resort, as it is a poor 
choice.  I am not a great fan of any of the commercial Open Source 
repositories out there now, and I've used each - they all have their 
strengths and weaknesses.  But I feel like SF or github at least won't 
pull up stakes and go away any time soon.  It is cheap insurance against 
code becoming unavailable somehow for reasons unforseen.  Berlios 
threatened to do so a while ago, but even it seems to still be alive.
