At last some movement in that space that's really nice. I think I've been 
annoying the sysadmin team with our current tools for a while now, so I can 
only propose Zanshin as one of the test projects.

I especially appreciate the global approach you took, indeed we have to go the 
forge approach not focus on code hosting + review only. It looks like 
Phabricator is a nice move in that direction to have something really 
consolidated and not plenty of disjoint tools.

BTW, since we didn't open a kanboard for Zanshin yet, we're totally up to test 
the task tracking of Phabricator. In fact the more tools we get enabled for 
our test the better so that we can cover wide on the features.
