SourceForge: Hot or Not?

Wonderful, now that I’ve set my little code project up on SourceForge, Tim Bray comes along and bursts my bubble. The consensus among his commenters seems to be that Google Code is the better place to put your projects. All that work going through SourceForge’s FAQs and help documentation just to discover that I’ve lost cool points! Ah well, the most labor intensive part of getting set up actually had nothing to do with hosted source control — namely, reorganizing the project to use Maven. I think if I need to move the project it will be easy enough to do so, although SourceForge does have some draconian rules about never removing files that have been posted. In any case, I will give Google Code a closer look in the near future.
