I think all these suffer the same fundamental problems as gitorious, merely differing in their implementation details (language choice, current features, current default page design, etc) FusionForge is nice for people who were already using a sourceforge fork, but I don't think its compelling at all for new projects.
I think fossil-scm is a fundamental solution to the problem.
