SourceForge.net moving to Fedora Core from Debian [SourceForge.net PR-Web Upgrade Notice.]

SourceForge.net is moving to Fedora Core from Debian!!!
This is a huge backoff for the Debian community.
Please do something to help SourceForge.net not take this step!!!
We need to hear why they are moving to Fedora Core and what problems
need to be fixed in Debian so they don't take this way.
