Urks. Well, I can host the web-version of the FAQ on my own 
web-server, but the code, issues, rest of the wiki and the 
GIT repository? Especially the code should be hosted
somewhere with a crack security team, signatures and 
forward-hashes in GIT nonwithstanding.

This shows (yet again), that Google is not in it for the 
tech, but just the profit. I would guess that continuing to 
keep Google Code open would cost them mere peanuts.
