If we were to change the infrastructure we use for hosting git trees,
we'd need something more concrete than "wouldn't it be nice". Please
give us a list of advantages, changes, potential pitfalls, pricing, etc.
For example, why gitorious and not github?

This is a bit too much like writing a letter to Santa :)


PS: Also, I'm not sure that the foundation list is the best place to
discuss such infrastructure changes, unless you're wondering about
funding. But you haven't given us a price...
