Google Code allows people to commit their code into either a Subversion (SVN), Git or Mercurial repository. It has a downloads section for people to upload their software packages (with a quota limit of 4GB, can be increased upon request) and also a wiki for projects to document their work at. There is also an issue tracker to track bugs in the project's software.
The site goes read-only on 24th August, 2015, followed by the closing on 25th January, 2016.
Archiving source code repositories is rather easy (and incremental). Just clone the git/hg repository, or checkout SVN repo. For SVN, make sure that you checkout all branches, not just trunk.
Archiving bugtrackers and the other stuff will be a bit harder.
