well, you weren't sure about autoconf, and now we use it...
There are good things about SF, and it doesn't mean there's no 
other solution:

-- multiple developers with CVS write access
-- public CVS repository 
-- file distribution system
-- bug tracking (well, we all know a better way for doing this)
-- zero cost of ownership
-- documentation management

There are nice projects which feel fine at SF, with dozens of developers 
on the list. 

What are you afraid of with SF? even if you loose control due 
to some politic changes at SF, you still have your CVS tarball backup.
And since there seem to be big companies interested, 
SF will last for long time.

that would be nice for a start.
