I sort of knew that they were replacing whatever they used before for
hosted projects, but I had not looked to close to it.

It does look pretty nice. python is nice (or at lease acceptable).

A few comments on first impression:

- Docs section is sluggish and I don't like that the scrollbar inside
  the page (iframe?) (

- Releases says: "If the developers have upload one or more tarball(s),
  you will be able to find them in the release folder."

  I would like to automatically create the tarballs when you push a new
  git tag.

I would likely switch right away if it had support for multi-gitbranch
tickets. That is, you file a ticket, lets say a CVE, and mark off which
git branches that needs to be fixed. When you git push a commit with
"fixes issue #X" the marked branch will get "checked" or hooked off.
Once all affected branches are fixed, the ticket is autoclosed.

That would be the killer feature.
