1. Savannah's git support is abysmally terrible. It is manual and it takes the gnu hackers forever to respond. People can say "help them out" all they want but that is impossible since i already have too much on my hands. There are discussions now on the Savannah list about moving to another repo management software (gogs and gitlab in particular). If that ever happens we will revisit making Savannah the master.

correct. It is not a project leader duty to help out there. It is a nice option if possible, but it can't be something required.

2. The sheer number of tools available for use with <>: code review, bug tracking, ci, static analysis, etc, etc... plus the exposure to other developers due to the ubiquitous use of the platform is hard to ignore.

So due to these two factors and more I believe that this is the only possible decision. Now, I will address your specific points...

Although I am not happy with ther decision, I won't object. If somebody will question why we are not on Savannah or other service, we shall reply that at the time of this writing, the GIT repository offered was not flexible enough.
