Sourceforge is closing their hosted app service, which means that, among other things, the .exe's and precompiled binaries will no longer be available for download (as they're closing their downloads service). So, the question is, what would you save?

THEIR SVN IS NOT GOING DOWN, but if they were, what would you save?

Here are two oldies:
http://catmother.sourceforge.net I question the legality of distributing their binary, but relying on the Intent To Use, they wouldn't have distributed it if they didn't intend to distribute it.
http://g3d.sourceforge.net
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gameincubator/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nebuladevice/
http://udt.sourceforge.net/

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tecnofreakanima/
http://cimg.sourceforge.net/

There's also HLSL2GLSL (obviated by the fork).

http://sourceforge.net/projects/dxglwrap/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gldirect/

this isn't everything I'd save, but it's a good chunk.

Almost forgot: http://sourceforge.net/projects/brlcad/?source=directory

http://sourceforge.net/projects/deled/?source=directory
Softpixel, Axiom, NOT Linderdaum (not happy with the license),

What would you save?

Odd, I haven't received any notice from SourceForge that their download service is going away. Hosted apps, yeah, they were less useful but their hosting service is still available. Are you sure you have your story straight?

We'll continue hosting your project, providing SCM, downloads, project web, mailing list, ticketing, forum, wiki*, and directory listing services as we do today.
That settles it, I'm lysdexic.

The question stands... sourceforge is burning, You have X computers handy, you can only download a few things, what do you download?
