SourceForge is a collaborative software development management system. SourceForge software is sold by VA Software. It provides a front-end to a range of services and integrates a number of opensource applications (such as mailman and CVS).

SourceForge.net is a centralized location for software developers to control and manage open source software development. SourceForge.net is hosted by VA Software and runs a version of the SourceForge software. A large number of open source projects are hosted on the site although it does contain a lot of dormant or single user projects.

The Free Software Foundation created their Savannah development site as a response to the perceived proprietrisation (closed source state) of the SourceForge software. Several collaborative sites now exist that utilise the SourceForge software.
