'GForge' is a fork of the 2.61 SourceForge code. It includes Jabber support: system events, such as bug submissions, are optionally sent via jabber and email; an easier installation: due to removal of much code, like caching and image servers, many install dependencies could be eliminated; a new interface, which should make it easier to navigate as well as know your present location; and code cleanup: since GForge does not need to scale to 500,000+ users, various hacks and optimizations have been removed.
