There's still lots of good software hosted on SF and from your comment I suppose you tend to use it to download binaries -- which important but somewhat auxiliary function of such site. And it's the one most fucked up on SF.
Anyway, what are the suggested alternatives that offer beside SCM some basic auxiliary stuff such as
- mailing lists
- web hosting
- download of packages/binaries
