I'm not sure hosting at OSFlash.org is really a big issue IMHO. I mean,
I've already pointed plenty of people to google code and I myself have
opened up repositories there for my own projects (pv3d is currently out
there). It's nice for the project leads so they can manage their users, see
download stats, manage downloads, source etc, - it's pretty nice. The only
downside is the amount of disc space you get up front (100mb). For Red5, we
couldn't possibly move out there.
As for mailing lists, I think it's good to have that hosted on OSFlash - it
definitely is something that consistent and any time someone's asked for a
change in mail settings, it's something I do right away because it's so
easy. And most of the time, I don't have to touch a thing, the lead has all
the power to modify the account.
So the issue as I know it is, google only has so much room, but you can
request more. But there's not guarantee. I would agree though, we do need
work on presentation on the site and I'm sure we could brainstorm some great
ideas for tools to add to OSFlash.org for the developers to present their
