Yeah, that certainly seems like a reasonable alternate to try.  GitHub
has essentially displaced SourceForge in the eco system.

Note, though, while there are not explicit bandwidth caps, their terms
of service does say:

> If your bandwidth usage significantly exceeds the average bandwidth usage (as determined solely by GitHub) of other GitHub customers, we reserve the right to immediately disable your account or throttle your file hosting until you can reduce your bandwidth consumption.

I do have a request in to the SFC and want to hear their wisdom as well.
