If moving away from Google Code is desired, an option to consider would be using
Apache Allura (podling) and/or SourceForge (which runs Allura).  Allura has
importers for Google Code wikis, tickets and source repos.  For files, Allura
itself doesn't have download system, but SourceForge does (AOO uses it too) and
SourceForge has implemented a Google Code files importer for it.  SourceForge's
docs about it are at

Note: these importers currently choke on the extra "/a/" in the
URL.  I'm sure that would be easy enough for us to fix if anyone wanted to
proceed in this direction.

I'm a member of the Allura PPMC and a SourceForge employee.
