It's certainly not to take advantage of the tools, unless they have
been living under a rock for the past 5 years when the rest of the
world of project-hosting overtook pgfoundry rapidly :)

That said, a lot of the projects on pgfoundry don't *need* anything
more advanced than what it provides. And given that restriction, it's
"good enough", and the "community visibility" (which IMHO pgfoundry
actually doesn't give you, but that's a different thing - people think
it does and that's what matters) adds value, and it's "the default
place to go".
