Well, I used "sourceforge" because everyone knows what it is. But I
know that we should find a better name even if Sourceforge is not
a trademark (sourceforge.net is however afaik) to make it more obvious that
it's not at all related to the site that VA is running.

I'm open for suggestions of course, but I choosed sourceforge
for several reasons :
- it's packaged within Debian; Roland Mas and Christian Bayle (who
  isn't yet an official developer) are doing a great job maintaining
  the package.
- sourceforge looks like the system that provides most of the
  features one could expect of such a software.

Yes I do. I use it within Debian for debian-cd (and various other
modules where I have contributed, including debian-installer and some
documentation). I also use it for the development of logidee-tools
and several private software/website.

However, we may want to evaluate arch and/or subversion before deciding
the tool we'll use for that particular project. Even better, we may want
to make it work with the three systems.
