Well, we have a projects website[1] but it's missing a section for
issues, project management, todos etc. I really like the idea of an own
gitlab instance. Our current project management is just too chaotic for
newbies. What is missing is a simple overview over "what need to be
done" or current "todos". Moreover i know that many of us like the
mailinglist based patch contribution but I am pretty sure that this is
an additional reason why we have such a lack on new patches.

I am pretty sure when we would have a gitlab instance or move our
dev-projects to github we would have more contributions.
