I'm not 100% sure, but Alioth is project hosting provided by the Debian
project, shootout is hosted on Alioth because Debian agreed to host it, and
the author/maintainer runs the shootouts on Ubuntu on various hardware.
Ubuntu did sprout from the fertile loins of Debian once upon a time (wow, I
feel old ... ), maybe that's one of the reasons Debian hosts this project
Anyway, a couple of best guesses.
