Thanks Ben for the right proposal.

During the process when the original thread becomes a hell of bickering
people defending his point instead of a concise approach, i almost loose
the faith on results.

I personally tested several of the tools on the last job, where i managed
internally the buildsystem, so i vow for phabricator as a good decision.
I really don't like gerrit, and my experience with it sometimes remove me
from want to do things.

Phabricator is the obvious system to go. We trusted our sysadmins decisions
for years, would not be different now.
