Hi Mike,

Thanks for your question. Yes, KForge is designed to support the 
management of services created from thirdy-party software application. 
So adding other applications is easy. We just write a new plugin. We 
started with Subversion and Trac, and I think setting up web space is 
already supported with pages editable via DAV. However, we could 
usefully add both FTP and a few CMSs but they aren't done yet.

I'll try to get more information about when these plugins might be 
ready. We're due to have the next planning meeting next Friday. I cc-ed 
this to the kforge-dev list as others may wish to provide more 
information in the meantime. (I'm away for a week from today.)

With my best wishes,
