R-Forge is mirrored on Github; see https://github.com/rforge/ecdat, for
example. That shows 418 commits in its history; presumably that's the
full R-forge history. I think that's newer than Michael Friendly's gist.
So I suspect (but haven't tried to do this) that migration now is as
simple as doing a Github fork to your own Github account, and then
basically forgetting about the R-forge stuff, or deleting it (and I
don't know how to do that).
