Hmm... I forgot to do a little editorial comment. Brace yourselves.

I find their position hypocritical to say the least. To prove my point, take a look at these "projects": -- Norman's Walsh's "Making TeX Work" -- Book of Life's Krishnamurti's Project    -- The Zope Book documenation project -- no comment  --- Linux networking book
<a bunch of others>

And the one that irks me most, because it isn't really Open Source unless you count a PDF and an HTML copy of an earlier edition of the published thing. Or did they bought the bit that becasue the book includes a copy of the GPL as an example of an Open source license, although not as being covered by it, it is Open Source?: -- LINUX: Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition

Soo... I would actually forward a copy of SourceForge's answer to and let them have a field day. If SF doesn't accept the UTP as an Open Source project on the grounds of being "content generation", they should kick out the above mentioned projects if they want to be fair to you and to the Open Source community.

And by the way, what the rats does contribute a book on the life of Krishnamurti to the advancement of the Open Source community? Spiritual enlightenment? Does that mean that a book on using troff and other Unix text-processing tools does not qualify as a means to attaining Open Source-cy arhatship?
