Not sure. While browsing projects, I found out a number of mirror (or 
fork) projects. For example SciTE, which is officially hosted on 
Now, the LP page of SciTE explicitly states this (giving links to SF 
project and Freshmeat record) and states "Does not use Launchpad for 
development." which appears to be a LP field.
And incorrectly states a GPL license. Might be the license of the fork, 
but then the project should have been renamed.

And well, I suppose lot of forks or mirrors are just pushed from a local 
copy of the project. With the risk of being obsolete.
