First of all, thanks to all who have answered.

As I said, uploading own CGIs would be nice. It seems Savannah doesn't
provide that. Also having web-space and a mailing-list is important to
me. From what I've read so far, it's easier to upload things on BerliOS
(with scp), while in Savannah it seems you have to use CVS - I'm not 
sure - is that right?

My concerns against BerliOS is on the one hand that they have 
advertising on their pages. Will that advertising be also connected 
to my programs pages?

But what really scared me away is that they seem to be connected to the 
Fraunhofer Institute. I admit, that I don't know very much about that
Institute. But what I know is, how they handled their patents to MP3. 
And that really doesn't give them a good name, I think.
What do you think about that?
