A, ok, I understand.  Well, ianal, but I don't think there would be
any legal quirks when getting the project hosted on Sourceforge.
About the moral side: Sourceforge is hosted by VA Linux; I don't have
the impression VA is Debian's enemy.

I am not aware of any task assignment infrastructure in debian, and
I don't think one could abuse debbugs to deliver this.  I think
sourceforge indeed could give you what you need, without any effort
from your side.
