Yes, I’m open for both GitHub, GitLab, Gitea, and similar «complete development 
environments» (or whatever it’s called.) I’ve been working in GitHub the last 
years, and it’s so nice to have a decent bugtracker, a great review tool, a 
great git web interface, and more, all in one place. It really saves 
development time and gets rid of a lot of developer frustrations.

I strongly dislike Gerrit, it's really hard to learn and even after
some time I still can't figure out how to use it correctly.
Both GitHub and GitLab (on would be a great improvement.
Not sure though if this is "allowed" for GNU projects (it's probably
not about the license, but being "GNU LilyPond").
