This is in one of the Sourceforge annoucements:
Subversion Service:  The research, analysis, and support gear-up needed to 
implement a Subversion service at SourceForge.net is now in progress. As 
with all SourceForge.net services, extensive analysis and testing must be 
performed to verify suitable levels of stability and scalability before a 
service can be rolled-out. We are expecting the initial phases of this 
effort to last several weeks, to be followed by the implementation of a 
testing environment which will be used for a live beta test by specific 
selected projects. Pending successful scalability testing, service details 
will be finalized and service will be offered to all projects. (Refreshed 
2005-04-21, to show continued in-progress status.) (Last updated:

I've got no clue when it will be ready.
Until then, maybe something like this could help dealing with CVS:
