Inkscape has just moved from bazaar to gitlab.com. You can read about it
here: https://about.gitlab.com/gitlab-com/

I think of all the options GitLab.com is what I would pick. In my
experience it’s challenging for open source projects to maintain their own
infrastructure (both because of cost and time). Using a hosted solution
solves that issue completely. It’s also a mostly open source project with
an easy migration path to a self-hosted product, unlike GitHub.

GitLab isn’t perfect, but out of all the existing solutions out there, I
think it’s the best. Their vision for end to end development workflow makes
the most sense. In particular I’m really a big fan of the integrated CI
approach GitLab has adopted. I’ve also been really impressed with how
quickly they’ve been moving in terms of feature development lately.

Thanks,
Matt
