I have used sourceforge for a project before, and believe me, it sucks.
Big time. Maybe they fixed some stuff, but the mailing list archives at
sourceforge are still the worst I have ever seen. Even running mbox
files through "more" has better usability.
svn and cvs at sourceforge are usually unreachable or extremely slow,
the download interface is clumsy, and thus the only remaining service
would be a ticket system. No idea if that can be integrated with
coreboot.org, and if that integration would be less work than fixing the
captcha issues with spam in trac (or moderating all trac comments which
contain hyperlinks).
