NetworkWorld reports: "Google is adding open source project hosting to its menu of services, said Greg Stein, a Google engineer and chairman of the Apache Software Foundation. Stein was scheduled to announce the launch in a talk Thursday at O'Reilly Media's Open Source Convention in Portland, Oregon. The new service, to be located at code.google.com, competes with VA Software Corporation's SourceForge.net. Unlike SourceForge.net, which carries both text and banner ads on project web pages, Google's service will be ad-free."
