That's trivial for a project manager to fix. And at least for svn, it's 
always the same anyway:

svn co http://svn.dsource.org/projects/{project name, just look at the 
project site's URL}/trunk WhereYouWantIt

Also, the idea that not having a choice of VCS is somehow better than a 
project needing to say which VCS it uses is pure absurdity.

I've seen it in some other projects but I can't remember the names
right now. There was also spam in the forums but I think that was
taken care of.

Regardless, the site is barely maintained. How is one to figure out
which projects are active, or which are D1 or D2 only?

Nick,

Your projects may have not been spammed, but I think it's more
likely that I removed the spam before you had a chance to see it.

This topic is just the tip of the iceberg:
http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5127

The Mango project's forum had probably been the target of the most
spam since it's at the top of the forum list, but I think that most
projects have probably been affected. I suspect that some of the
moderators catch spam in their forums and deal with it, but many
moderators have inactive project forums where the spam could just
sit trying to increase PageRank for somebody's random e-commerce
website or generate clicks or whatever the spammer's goal is.

I've just manually closed the spam tickets for QtD, but this is not a 
very enjoyable way to spend your time…

David, should I use bitbucket for any new tickets? As a side-note,
I've been having some runtime problems trying to use slots and
signals. I've posted about them in the forums
http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=237 . When you have some
free time could you take a look? Thanks for maintaining QtD btw.

That can be handled in other ways, such as CAPTCHA. There's no need to ban 
mailinator addresses.

Hi Andrej,

please use the issue tracker at DSource for the time being. I'll have a 
look at your posts when I find some time – I don't think anybody really 
monitors the forums at DSource.

Also, I'm only helping Eldar and Max out here and there… ;)

Thanks to those guys as well. I'll post my problems to the issue tracker.

Ok you don't have to look in the forums, I've opened up a ticket:
