1. much faster to open an account on github than to go through a chain
of emails between the contributor, infra and gentoo devs.
1. easier to track clones and pull
1. good luck having a code reviewing tool accepted by infra within a
reasonable time frame
2. bugzilla + tag [science overlay] is a hack prone to human mistake
that gives unnecessary work to bugs scanners, whereas a unified
scm+issue system going straight to the dev
3. wiki.g.o is up but not unified to a specific project, I have not
seen a single sci contribution yet

It would be awesome to have infra set up Gentoo projects with a nice
unified web+wiki+issue tracker+repo. Unfortunately I don't see it
happening in the next year or so. Meanwhile external solutions exist.
Basically the idea is to reduce work load and bureaucracy while
improving code quality.
