SourceForge drifting

development facility, which hosts a large number of Free
Software
projects, has changed its policies. Features
for exporting a project from SourceForge have been
removed. The implementation used to be exclusively Free
Software but is now based
on non-free software
. Finally, VA Linux has become rather underhanded in their
attempts to grasp exclusive control of contributors' work." (VA Linux is a corporate parent of NewsForge.)
