Well, they *do*, technically, it's just that the project has been
unmaintained since 2001:

But of course there is now more than one open source fork of the
original system available (Gforge, Savannah).

on an ongoing basis the current version of the code that they are
running is Slashdot:

Is this enough to get SourceForge / OSTG / VA Software a pass?
