That's a pity.
Meanwhile, in the middle of some other discussion thread, an Anonymous Coward over on Slashdot posted that these projects also got affected by similar things:
"Other projects recently hijacked by SF include many Apache projects (Allura, Derby, Directory Studio, the Apache HTTP server, Hadoop, OpenOffice, Solr, and Subversion); Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and FireFTP; Evolution and Open-Xchange; Drupal and WordPress; Eclipse, Aptana, Komodo, MonoDevelop, and NetBeans; VLC, Audacious, Banshee.fm, Helix, and Tomahawk media players; and many others."
Dropped there as an Info-Blob - I'm not all that interested in a detailed rundown. Just if this is the thing they are doing, via your note, it's an FYI level item to me.
