Yes, we're currently still testing the functionality and improving the 
documentation, but an article for R News that announces the functionality 
is under preparation. There is already a user's manual available on the 
main page which explains how you can register and set up your project etc. 
Just as Simon's site this already offers an SVN and nightly builds in a 
CRAN-style repository, and additionally there is the whole GForge system 
with other features such as project forums, mailing lists etc.
