That's one of the annoyances; it's aggravated me more than once when I
wanted to do a repo-copy or some such.

It does, however, post up nightly snapshots of the repository, so you CAN
replicate or move it elsewhere reasonably easily.  And the SF staff will
stick in a tarball of an existing repository when setting up the project
if you ask 'em.
