Yes; I helped trial it for the sys admin team along with the GCompris project. 
The user experience was really quite good, though the patch review was the 
weakest point though pretty much every issue I had with it was in their issue 
tracker with some being actively worked on.

The sysadmin team had some issues with the backend in terms of scaling to 
KDE's requirements.

I do agree that an all-in-one githubish experience is generally superior to a 
cobbled together geekyard; you have one tool to learn and use and developers 
are typically used to that workflow these days.

There are other options out there that provide that kind of user experience 
such as and phabricator. I haven't used either, though, so can't speak 
to them ...
