i know, but it just sends an email telling you from where to pull, you
still need to host somewhere and not everywhere has the time or
willingness to autohost.

right, i forgot about smtp (local sendmail is way cooler :P)

i wouldn't mind using gitlab (i already use it for work), though it'll
require changing our issue tracker yet another time, though it'll merge
projects and labs subdomains. i read trisquel is using gitlab now too.
that said i prefer gitlab over redmine and i can ask a friend who's
hosting our gitlab in parabola for his experience setting it up.

this would be awesome and more transparent for development
