“A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."
It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Sourceforge, a prominent project hosting website, began to wrap some software downloads on the site in installers that included unrelated third-party offers.
This new way of delivering downloads to users affected only program downloads of projects where the admin of the project enabled the option.
Several popular program hosted on Sourceforge, the ftp client FileZilla for instance, have been offered primarily with download wrappers ever since.
It is clear however that the majority of projects on Sourceforge are not making use of download wrappers. I checked the first three pages of the site's top apps listing and found that most don't use download wrappers right now.
...It is clear that Sourceforge is in full damage control mode after the story broke and while it removed wrappers from downloads, it did not hand over accounts to previous owners.
