Joseph,

Thanks for feedback.

Collabnet is not OSS.   We would be dependant on their charity (and 
profitablity)  to host us, which has not been The PostgreSQL Way (tm) to 
date.   Also, as a former OpenOffice.org Project lead, Collabnet is not very 
responsive to user feature requests unless they are backed by $$$$.   It's 
the way proprietary software works.   Last time I was involved (late 2002), 
all web management on CN was done via CVS, which meant that everything, 
including news items, needed to be coded in raw HTML.    Not the direction we 
want to go in.

Believe me, I considered CN, because it *is* an excellent code management 
tool.  But it's not OSS and the community management support isn't there.

Not sure.   Anyone?

Nope.  Drupal is stricty community; it doesn't do project/code management.   
Also it doesn't scale (and isn't intended to).
