Google's Sourceforge Competitor

Today at OSCON, Google announced a new site for developers to house their open source projects. The site allows publishers to choose one of seven different open source licenses for their project and provides access to issue tracking and a subversion repository.

I think it is great to see Google do this. I have become increasingly frustrated with Sourceforge and the amount of blatent advertising on that site. Google’s site is lacking in some features, but hopefully since it is beta (big suprise) there are still features yet to be realized.
