I agree that if we stick to either using salsa for Debian projects it
makes it easier to collaborate, keeps everything together and Debian ,
as hosts, keeps interests at heart, accountability is then to the
community.  Similarly if we self host a repository structure then we are
in control,

As the underpinning idea allows us to collaborate cross platforms then
we have the choice.
