I too prefer to stay away from commercial,non-free services like GitHub.
Gitorious (http://www.gitorious.org/) is a great service, similar to
Github, but with added freedom.

Currently the git repository is at git://notmuchmail.org/git/notmuch
which seems like a fine location for it, but perhaps I missed the
motivation for switching to a centralized repository with the added
overhead of giving people access to commit?

Couldn't all of this be done without moving the existing git repository
(don't forget that transition is a cost)? Those who wish to put together
these proposed branches go ahead and do so, publishing those wherever
they like (git.debian.org, gitorious, their own hosted git repositories,
or even github) and then Carl can just add those as remotes as he sees

Personally, I've found mailing lists that have patches sent to them
tends to totally kill the list for anything else. It seems a bit weird
to use Debian's bug tracker for a non-Debian native program (but using
it for the Debian package of notmuch does make sense). I am not so
familiar with Roundup, patch queue trackers or patchwork to have
anything to say about those.
