This page used to be a rant about SourceForge's shady practices around circa 2015, along with some basic comparison of other hosting services.
Times have changed, and SF has a new owner, determined to fix their reputation:
- SourceForge Acquisition and Future Plans
- Under new management, SourceForge moves to put badness in past (arstechnica.com)
- SourceForge now scans all projects for malware and displays warnings on downloads
- Reddit AMA with the owner
You can find the old version in the git repository, if you're interested.
