I share this experience, although it became better lately. What's even more disturbing for me is that the time gap between a commit and the availability of a commit can be quite large (from hours to days). This adds another dimension for discussions about which version is installed, and requires either polling for a new version, or sometimes sending versions via email. There are alternatives to sourcefore not having this problem, but still, for visibility sourceforge is certainly better. Mirroring seems a good compromise, although i have no experience with this. Note, that SF is not only a code repository, but also a place for discussions about the code. Have two such places is no good idea from my experience.
