How so? It's not hard to aggregate stuff, and we're not doing it *at all* right now.

The latter. Which most other project hosting sites already offer.

However what we probably want is a thin aggregation layer on top of those (maybe a version of planet.postgresql.org on steriods with aggregates the various feeds and adds search on top).

Yes.

Well, it's certainly related to download URLs. But it's not at all what pgFoundry does, I agree.

Agreed.
