I guess the real issue is that the old infrastructure is no longer really  
available. Or, perhaps, it's the people who used to do the work are no  
longer available.

While I'm not as strongly against commercial services as Yuppie is, I do  
share his basic reservations, particularly with respect to Github. I have  
some of my own repositories on Bitbucket, partly because I prefer  
Mercurial for my VCS and partly because I prefer the T&Cs. I know nothing  
about Gitlab, but I think that as you're already hosting Jenkins, the most  
sensible thing would be to take you up on your hosting offer.

An exit strategy is always a good idea as at some point in the future you  
are not going to be able to manage the servers.

I might be vocal but unfortunately not so active at the moment so thanks  
for bringing this up.
