Nice to hear Openmoko projects site is back online.
I have no idea who maintains it but I guess it's someone from Openmoko Inc.

Google Code seems to work well, I don't have experience from others. I
would also think Google is reliable enough that it'll not just
disappear from the net. And since working on public/open data, it
really doesn't matter if you store it somewhere else - Google will
find it anyway :)

David Reyes Samblas Martinez <david at tuxbrain.com> has been working on
it. He took apt-portal code (running at playdeb.net, available at
https://edge.launchpad.net/apt-portal) and wrote the required parts to
use .opk/.ipk repositories. There are no published results visible
yet, I hope he'll show us something soon :)
