Lets see what I can find about Google Code:

Yes, see http://groups.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=56641
Also, I think that mails are preserved im plain text (but haven't checked)

Issues are managed using tags, which can be freely defined by project owners. 
This should give reasonable flexibility in this point. See 

The issue tracker supports multiple attachments per issue, see e.g. 

SVN is writable for all group members, though, see 
http://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/FAQ#Subversion Google thinks this is 
the way open source should work (I tend to agree). However, there seems to be 
a feature for code review, see 
http://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/CodeReviews This feat seems 
interesting, but I haven't taken a closer look.

Yes, see

It's google, so it should be rather sttable..

There is also some sort of Wiki, which I haven't looked at more closely, see 

So, I would say Google Code might be an interesting candidate as an 
alternative/supplement to source forge. But that is certainly not my 
choice... :-)
