Here's what we do. We set a series of milestones and target bugs and
blueprints to these milestones. We also attach branches (not patches)
to bugs and blueprints. When a linked branch is ready to merge into
another branch (trunk or other) we add a merge request, which enables
the review system. We create sub teams and sub projects that all have
different rights and responsibilities. So basically we use pretty much
all aspects of a modern project hosting solution. Bugzilla is just a
bug tracker.

You don't see a lot on LP these days because we have completed most of
what we had up. Admittedly it's not very obvious how to list closed
bugs, but we have all in all 146 on the Zeitgeist project (keeping in
mind that we moved the project a while back).

So there. I like this setup, but personally I could also work with
Bz+git, even though Bz feels a bit 1990ish.

I am not sure this whole hosting discussion is worth the effort. If we
as a team can guarantee that we will work towards an acceptable
solution (given that we are accepted) that ought to be good enough.
Or, as Emmanuelle pointed out, if we end up as an external dep. then
the discussion is just moot.
