i agree; but none of the forges on this list are of that case -
perhaps is, because all projects are GNU
projects; but is not

thats why Yuchen's essential question is: how much of the
functionality of forges would qualify as SaaSS, in cases where it
is operated by "someone else"

IMHO, projects are using these freebies only because the are
popular, and for the convenience of someone else maintaining
their infrastructure for gratis - nothing prevents projects from
operating their own forge, or to competently manage their
projects without any forge - even if they must pay for hosting,
it would be only a few bucks per month, for most projects -
IMHO, that qualifies all but as SaaSS
