It might be worthwhile to consider all the possible sourceforge-like sites in case there is a particular advantage of one over the others.

Also some languages have started their own sourceforge-style project repositories such as luaforge.net and rubyforge.org and one could conceivably have an Rforge too.

I don't know enough about the above sites to say much more but I think the key requirements are to provide support to addon packages and projects to encourage the current explosion of such software. The idea would be to automate the setup of an infrastructure that includes such things as:
