Thank goodness for competition.

Sourceforge hasn't had any serious competition which is why its interface is a mess, searching is imprecise, there's constant downtime, and the forums have the worst interface I've seen. Tigris, Berlios, Savannah, etc. are nice alternatives but they tend to cater to niche OSS projects. Google could finally alarm Sourceforge enough so there's some healthy competition.
