OT: Suggestion for new OSS SCC site / tool for xmlsh ? SourceForge has gone to the dark side.

I am so annoyed by this thread and the associated links which seem to clear the FUD

Basically SourceForge has been bought by Dice and now is encouraging users to use their Malware infected  (well "Encouraged Additional Applications you Didnt Ask For")
 installer (like the Oracle Java installer) that drive-by installs other junk.
I hosted on SourceForge originally 6 years ago because I felt it provided a (by association with other good quality OSS) sense of quality and respect to an OSS project.
Now the opposite is true, I might as well host on aol.com

Suggestions welcome ... I've really only used the deployment and SVN server component of SF ... and event those I could host myself but I do find it useful to let people
browse the code history online.

Do I need (want to?) learn "git" ? and move to github ?  My "Git" experience so far has been disappointing (I cant figure it out !  The model makes  no sense and I never know if stuff is checked in or not)
I have some projects on google code which has been sufficient and trustworthy as sites go ... but it has that "google owns you" creepiness factor.

Suggestions welcome ...
Self host ? Github ? Google Code ? Others ?

Oh yea, I *rarely* plug this ... but if you feel so inclined you may want to spread the news about SF ...
So far their drive-in installer download is "opt in" (to the developer) ... but the direction is sad.   It was ad sponsored enough already .... "Infecting" installers,
even if approved by the vendors, is just too much for me to take.
