OK.  I think that we should ideally have a Debian portal providing 
source-forge like functionality (maybe with this GNU package of software).

I am sure that we will soon have many such portals to choose from, but I 
would prefer to host Portslave, Bonnie++, Postal, and my other projects on a 
Debian based site.
