Ok, I should step in here. For some time I am in the process of setting up an
alioth replacement for git.d.o. 

I know that the process is far away from the point where it should be know.
However the plan is still to move to gitolite. 

I don't think that gitlab is able to replace git.debian.org in its current
implementation. Given that gitlab is a monster given its huge number of
dependencies is another point. I would really prefer to have something more
simple than gitlab.
