I'm quite a fan of self-hosting, however the distributed nature of Git
changes a bit the scenario and for the things above I've found GitHub
to be a very good framework, esp. when using Issues and Pull Requests

It is a "commercial" project, but offers gratis hosting to F/OSS and
the people running it are known to be kewl and no-nonsense.
