Hi Paul!

I totally agree. I started using GNU lightning just recently and I think
it is great. I think moving it to github/gitlab could breathe life into
lightning again.

Personally I prefer github, but gitlab would also be fine.

Sending patches via email works, if there is someone on the other end

without feedback, and I'm not the only one in this case, it seems.

I don't blame the maintainer, who may have very little time on his/her
hands, but this situation will eventually lead to the death of the
project, if those who want to contribute don't have the means to do so.

So let's move the project to github/gitlab, which will allow PRs to be
*visible* and not buried in a mountain of emails, and bug reports to
actually be seen.

Last but not least... Improving Lightning right now is a real pain,
because truth to be told, nobody will run the tests on all archs after
each commit. But a CI instance on github/gitlab can totally do that.
Creating a PR would trigger the tests on all supported archs, and we
would immediately detect when something has gone wrong.

Hopefully you will agree that it makes sense and is a step in the
right direction.
