There is a big FLOSS project I spend my daily work for, called OpenStack. Given its target, contributions comre from companies and certainly normal users are not too interested about it and even more about how it is developed. Despite this, it has a strong manifesto with interesting values:
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Open

and that extends to the infrastructure too. Leaving aside the usage of launchpad for bugs (there is a replacement which is advanced state of development), guess what? Infra team has an own git, contributions go to the internal gerrit. Github is just a mirror and I didn't hear anyone screaming or complaining about loss of contributions.

Now, if they can do that, why can't we do it?

Ciao
