Okay, that's where you are totally wrong.

Gforge: Doesn't offer project hosting, but project hosting software.
Savannah: Doesn't offer non-gpl hosting and is not reliable and has  history
of unreliability.
Google: Doesn't host other than the core 7 or so licences (I should know)
(It is teh awesome though)

Nothing personal, but let's be real here, does a -lot- for open
source software. Doesn't mean that this OSA things means anything.


Hope you feel better soon.  Looking forward to the video and writeup.
