I asked, here's SF's answer:
At this time, SourceForge.net does not provide services
related to the Subversion version control system. CVS has
existed for a very long period of time and has reached a
high level of maturity, ideal for many applications. Though
we are aware that the design of CVS lacks certain types of
operations that Subversion has been designed specifically to
handle (like directory handling), extensive testing and
analysis must be carried out to ensure suitability as an
addition to our service offering. The SourceForge.net team
is continuing to monitor the progress of Subversion (which
released version 1.0 in early 2004), its adoption for use by
hosting providers and large repository applications, as well
as documentation and client software. We will continue to
evaluate Subversion and may provide Subversion services in
the future.

Too bad... any alternative repository?
