Gerrit, Git requirements, cooperation with others. was: git dangerous operations on alioth

Hi Daniel et al,

I'm also thinking a lot about how to improve Debian by improving our Git 
tooling. Therefor I'm packaging Gerrit (#589436). But gerrit and its 
dependencies is a big project...

Now that Git slowly becomes the de facto standard VCS for Debian[1] 
(resistance is futile) it might be time to review our setup and think whether 
we could improve our Git infrastructure. Should we start a wiki page to 
collect thoughts?

My thoughts are:

- I'd like to have support for reviews (e.g Gerrit)
- pull requests (e.g Gerrit)
- I'd like continuous integration (triggered e.g. by Gerrit[2])
- Easy for anybody to submit patches (e.g Gerrit)
- A frontpage that doesn't take ages to load
- Easier project creation without the need to SSH into alioth
- regular fetching of the upstream branch from upstreams master

I was also thinking whether Debian should cooperate with other projects so 
that the workload of maintaining such a setup could be shared. I started to 
collect candidates for collaboration here:
