Personally, I think that SourceForge is a great deal -- lots of
functionality pre-built, for free, but their quality of service can be
iffy. But even if we're a little frustrated with them, I'd recommend
against us setting up our own source code repository, bug reporting
database, etc., until we've got more people (and funding) in place to
support them properly.
