I agree Sourceforge is a good model.  I have a project there too, which 
I've pretty much abandoned.  I'm hoping to do better with my OLPC projects.

I just thought that cleaning up the current page might be a good thing 
in the short term.  There are a fair number of interesting Activities 
that seem to be abandoned (Space Wars, DOS Emulator, Spreadsheet, 
Calculadora, etc).
