I have a friend who is a developer at Sourceforge; they've completely
revamped their entire network. So previous conceptions of Sourceforge
(I didn't like them either) aren't valid.
They provide a variety of hosted applications now and I've created a
project there to play with them
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/coils/>. If you have a Sourceforge
account send a request to join the project and I'll add you and you can
play around in their version of Trac (which I have enabled)
<https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/coils/> IMO, the best feature of
GoogleCode is their Wiki, so it will be interesting to see how it stacks
up. So far Trac seems comparable. I'm curious how nice a "site" one
can create in Trac (that doesn't necessarily scream "I'M A WIKI!").
