Clutter already has a Git repository, there's no need to switch over to
GNOME's (GStreamer, which is in the Desktop library does the same, being
hosted on; same goes for Bugzilla.

I can definitely willing to push release tarballs on and
push a copy of the API reference on I actually wanted
to do so for 1.0, so I'll probably contact the library.g.o maintainer
for that.

it says:

Modules must use GNOME FTP for releases. Modules ought to use GNOME
Bugzilla and GNOME Git (there had better be a very good reason for not
doing so, such as hosted libraries designed to be used
by both GNOME and KDE).

which I daresay Clutter falls under the "good reason for not doing so"
as in "we already have infrastructure in place for it"[0].



[0] Though I must admit that switching to GNOME's Bugzilla would be
pretty nice, we do have some Clutter-specific bits in our own Bugzilla
that would make the transition problematic -- first and foremost the
copyright waiver attachment flag for patches.
