I didn't want to be bold, but I just took initiative. Nothing of this
has to be final.

archlinuxarm is maintained via github - this gave the idea. However,
from a personal point I can understand the hesitation to create a github
account. :-)
In the end, one could think of cgit on our own server totally
disconnected from github, but then we'd probably reinvent the wheel for
tickets, discussions, and the like.
Our case is closer to archlinuxarm than archlinux, so it seems to make
more sense to copy from them.

true, but how detailed should the discussion herein become? Once we have
a platform for git, tracking issues and discussing code lines, shouldn't
we switch to that one? I thought, github would be a good platform for
that - at least to start with. Or with other words: City-busz just put a
proposal for a build-system on:
(it's readable for anyone, I hope)
