The phrasing they use in the post is «Mirrored projects[those that they
take over] are sometimes used to deliver easy-to-decline third-party

What should happen is this:
1. take back control of the http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-win/
project page,
2. decommission the project (remove files, text, documents, etc).

It looks like SourceForge is too desperate to monetize since they have lost
their edge to github.
There is no future to Sourceforge.
