I don't think he wants sourceforge to host git, I think he'd like
sourceforge to provide access to source trees via git, instead of
cvs.  Read that as, I want to do:

git pull http://www.sourceforge.net/packageName

instead of:

cvs -d pserver:www.sourceforge.net co packageName

        While it might be easy to host your own project, Linus has some
infamous quote I'll paraphrase as "Real men don't make backups, they
upload to public FTP and let other's make backups...".

        I know if I was working on OSS project, I wouldn't be too
heartbroken to let someone else run the security, backup, and
general SA duties for me.  More time to write code that way...
