Though are there any relevant web apps which are free software? And
despite that we are all using them...

Yeah, I was proposing to give it a try to see if it works well in general.

Btw I tend to think if we splitted patches a lot more then we are
currently doing reviews would be easier, though that might be personal
taste. With multiple patches as you say, the pull workflow should work
better than the others.

Anyway  I think a github workflow would cover three important things
we care about

* Patches are visible to anyone.
* Patches are trackable.
* Integration with issues tracking.

Of course it migth introduce other problems :)
