Here is how I understand wicketstuff hosting:

Someone makes something cool and decides to share it with the community.
Then this person asks in the mailing lists for commit permissions. After
that this person jumps into something else and don't have time to
support the project. Later on I need this cool feature and the first
place to look for it is (you know because of the
advertising in the mailing lists). Then I add or improve something to
this project and again share it with the community. After me someone
else does the same and the project lives. Otherwise some volunteer (like
Jeremy) decides that this project is not maintained and moves it to

About GoogleCode, github, bitbucket, ... yes, you can put your project
there. But there are two problems: 
1) it is less visible
it is not next to the other wicketstuff projects where everyone checks
2) when you don't have time to support it you need to give commit
permissions to the people who have time or they will start clone it all
over Internet. And this will just confuse further future
