The reason I favour a GBorg is that VA Linux (who own sourceforge) have yet
to turn in a profit and so maylook to trim some of it's assets in order to
improve profitability at some point in the future.

I think it would be a bad move to shift everything to sourceforge, only to
find that a year or more down the line the site dissappears/degrades to a
level where it causes problems for the project, and loose the time we could
have spent building up the reputation of GBorg.
