Currently Debian-Sourceforge 2.5, which is Sourceforge adapted to be
installable and packageable.  We already have rather stable packages
for Sourceforge 2.6, in which we have a reasonable amount of
confidence.  We also have packages for Gforge, btu since it's still
evolving rather rapidly, we don't trust it to be fully stable yet.

  In any case, one of our priorities when packaging SF 2.6 and Gforge
was upgradability.  I'm not quite sure about upgrading Sourceforge to
Gforge (it's Christian's work, and I haven't tried it myself yet), but
upgrading SF 2.5 to SF 2.6 is smooth and automatic.  So we'll probably
end up giving up on SF altogether when Gforge is stable and trusted.
