In my opinion the idea isn't necessarily for the FSF to host it, but
definitely to promote it. This isn't about repo hosting but rather about
making it easy for people to find projects to contribute to and some
guidance on where to get started. Having the FSF promote this site (not
necessarily host it) would help to ensure that people in the Free
Software world know where to go, ie. help it to become known.
