Yes.  SourceForge keep backups themselves but only for restoring after
hardware failure, so they do suggest projects keep their own backups of
their data, e.g. SCM and mailing lists.

    http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Backup%20your%20data
    http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Using%20rsync%20for%20backups#CVS

Perhaps that's something riscos.info could offer.  Knowing there's a
centralised, say weekly, backup of sf.net Acorn projects, e.g. arcem,
and riscose, would be nice.

Cheers,


Ralph.
