2015: Admins hijacking projects to add more adware
- 444,202 project URLs found: https://github.com/marcroberts/archiveteam-sourceforge-lister/blob/master/projects-sorted.txt
Download files can be found on public ftp mirrors, priority on the rest of the site then download files last? e.g. http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.sourceforge.net/
CVS/svn/git/hg/bzr repositories should be a priority; many projects do not have their source code on the ftp mirrors.
