"What VA Linux has now realised is that if SourceForge can support a collaborative development effort that big, then it can also host in-company development projects. And that is what SourceForge 3.0 aims to provide.

This version of SourceForge runs, not surprisingly, on Linux (however, the company has announced plans for other operating systems, of which the first will be Sun Solaris). You might think that it would also be run based on an open source database such as MySQL but, fortunately for its sales potential, the company has taken the pragmatic stance of rolling it out on Oracle (though 8i rather than 9i) in the first instance.

The product has some nice features such as a source control system, bug tracking, support for on-line discussion forums, web-based mailing lists, extended search features and advanced document management capabilities."
