ASL allows this, given that you put proper notices in the documentation 
/ source code (if you distribute any source code). However, AFAIR the 
terms of service at SF.net don't allow such removal, and the staff at 
SF.net should be notified and take some action...

Reaching an amicable conclusion to this would be preferrable, of course, 
but there is also a procedure to overtake a project at SF.net, it takes 
ca. 3 weeks to complete, perhaps shorter if you can prove violation of 
terms of service. But I think it's easier to restore the project under 
another name, based on the latest published sources...
