Free Software Foundation: SourceForge is Drifting
In an article on the Web Site of Free Software Foundation Europe, Loic Dachary says that SourceForge is "drifting" because it is now using proprietary software components and because some portions of the Web Site that allowed OpenSource projects to be exported have been removed. SourceForge is a Web Service operated by VA Linux Systems that provides version control and communications services to OpenSource software projects.
In our opinon, there has always been "counterparty risk" associated with using the SourceForge service (i.e., will OpenSource projects be able to continue if SourceForge ceases to exist?). But, people involved in OpenSource projects have not acted as if this was a major concern until relatively recently.
