Both suffer from some combination of (a) no issue tracking, (b) no
message queues or mailing lists, and (c) no hosting for static webhosting.

There are *no* solutions that do what I want.  Remote scriptability is
lacking, the forges that support mailing lists require separate
credentials for them, there are many other problems. I am so pissed
off about the abysmally shitty state of forge technology that my next
major project is probably going to be building one that doesn't suck.

Unrelated note.  This tic you have of ending every sentence with a
question mark makes it nearly impossible for me to take you seriously.
