>The Alioth admins reject requests to use it merely as storage for a package without a need
for ongoing collaborative maintenance.
This is wrong. See http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/PackagingProject for details. You can host
your VCS repository in collab-maint even if you're alone working on your package.
Alioth is clearly the most used resource to host VCS for package management but it's not a
resource that has to be used by everybody. Each maintainer has the liberty to host it
whereever he prefers.
