First of all, thank you for asking for feedbacks and comments on this. I
would expect that the main services are smart and simple. This concerns
- release binaries hosting;
- bug tracking;
- a wiki (to involve the users participation).

I mainly agree with your analyse.

The VCS system may be hosted on another site, I believe it doesn't
matter that much. Also, I don't usually use online source browsers, so I
have no particulary needs/comments on it.

Nice, I'd like to stick to Git too. I aim to go further into the
OfflineIMAP development... But I work as fast as my free time permits.
