currently in the process of completing hardware procurement and
system build-out. The official date for this upgrade has not yet
been set; once our hardware build-out has been completed, the
date will be announced on the SourceForge.net Site Status page.

This upgrade consists of a significant hardware upgrade and
Operating System upgrade. Due to the large upgrades involved here,
it may be necessary to upgrade your scripts.

Old configuration:

Linux kernel 2.4.x
GNU libc 2.2.1
Apache 1.3.26
Perl 5.005_03
PHP 4.1.2
Python 1.5.2
Tcl 8.0

New configuration:

Fedora Linux: Fedora Core 2

Tcl 8.4.5

Additional upgrades may be performed after this initial upgrade is
completed; any follow-up changes will be announced via the
Site Status page.

A host roughly matching the configuration of the new project web
servers is being placed within the Compile Farm on 2004-10-22.
Additional information regarding the Compile Farm may be found

I would not go that far although it is definetly a great thing to see the "stable" form of our beloved distro of choice being used by such a great site.
