SF has been reliable for me for many years. They're bound to run into

For another example of where I think using SF would have benefitted us
as a community, have a look at LinuxSampler's homepage. Since December,
you have been unable to download source tarballs, because they
experience a hardware failure. This made packaging a PITA, especially
for someone as new to making .debs as I am, because whenever possible,
you are encouraged to use the source tarball releases, and not a CVS
checkout. But we had no choice.
In any case, ok, I understand where you guys are coming from.
