Savannah is an option if the "project runs primarily on a completely
free OS", which doesn't sound to be the case.  For GitLab, I wrote
extensively about it here:

  https://about.gitlab.com/2015/05/20/gitlab-gitorious-free-software/

GitHub is not a good option; they have demonstrated that they do not
support software freedom, and continue to serve proprietary JavaScript,
with no intent to change it.  I and others have contacted them in the
past (including RMS) with no success.

The FSF and GNU already have a huge number of resources available
online and in print.  If you are interested in creating an FAQ to try to
put everything in one place, I'd recommend getting in contact with
someone at the FSF, or creating a page on the LibrePlanet wiki.  You can
try address@hidden could point you in the right direction, at
least.
