Maybe not, but one can still list on, 
and so on.  freshmeat is linked from every sourceforge page - it's a bit 
disappointing that it doesn't offer a link from the search results page.

Are you keeping notes?  It would be interesting to read how it 
progresses and may help the debian gforge packagers improve it.

Aye, gforge gives you a lot, but does take some support.  I'd probably 
host my project on simple http+smtp where possible and only then use one 
of the existing hosting packages, unless I'd got some extra ambition 
like the publicity for local development.
