At least a few others have the same problem.

Their administrative tools (or lack thereof) would cause an increase in
workload. While it may look smooth from the outside, from the inside using
SourceForge isn't always fun or easy. They have their ups and downs.

A more likely alternative is hosting at a University site where we would
have full access and control over our own resources. That becomes
available to us in the late spring or early summer, and we will look at it
harder then.

Yeah, Yahoo has managed to burn up any residual goodwill leftover from
Egroups, IMO.
