I am not sure how it currently looks in sourceforge rules, but some
time ago one of most important rules was that if you have project on
sourceforge you have to host project files (distros, source code) on
the sourceforge servers (they are living from advertisements shown
during downloads). So doing it way you suggest with pointing to your
site may violate these rules.
