Creating a repository is actually the only time "bureaucracy" is required.
Giving write permissions just works over FAS. (There's a FAS group for every
repository that is created, the developer only needs to request group
membership through FAS and you can approve it, all self-service in FAS.)
Clones, commits, pushes etc. are plain git (or SVN or whatever you chose!
Fedorahosted is much more flexible than GitHub there) just as on GitHub or
anywhere else. A Trac site is automatically created along with the
repository if requested (you're expected to say in the repository request
whether you want Trac or not, normally you should always say "yes"), it has
bug trackers which work with FAS accounts (and Trac's issue tracker is no
worse than GitHub's, they're actually very similar), a repository browser,
and a wiki that you can edit (no "bureaucracy"). You also get a directory
for file releases below https://fedorahosted.org/releases/ that accepts SCP
I really don't see what is missing there, apart from missing automation for
the one-time creation process.
