You're forgeting, patch/code reviews, possibility to close or refer to a ticket
from the git commit, the possibility to easily follow a project and be informed
of its changes (yes, I know, you can create mailing list and have all the
commits and action from the trac be sent to said list, I already do this for
fedocal) and probably some more feature I'm forgetting.

Anyway, did you see the link in the footer? The one that says 'pkgdb'?
