That's useful input, Ken.

I don't know the future plans. I'm not even completely clear what
gforge and kforge mean. I see collections of project hosting software
by those names. I also see kforge.ros.org, which appears to be a
kforge site. I guess code.ros.org must be a gforge site. If so, I
agree that gforge is a bit clunky.

If the new stack will not end up in ros-pkg, then it makes no sense to
start out there. I see advantages to being hosted at WG, but only
where it fits the direction you are going.

What do you recommend?

Is kforge.ros.org a reasonable candidate?
