it is a common suggestion on this list to generally add more hosts to
the list (including self-hosting options)

i think that many git hosts have been evaluated at least partially that
do not yet appear on the website for one reason or another - the
evaluation is done by volunteers so perhaps more volunteers could help
this along - we did an evaluation of our own at the peers community of
about 12 different VCS hosts/platforms when deciding how to increase the
GNU Ethical Repository ranking of notabug last year - i would be happy
to share our results as a basis for a wider scope of evaluations which i
would also like to see happen - surely 4 data points is not as helpful
as it could be, especially with some of the more popular hosts omitted

for now i can suggest that you may be interested in notabug which AFAIK has ranked the highest so far of those
that do not yet appear on the list with a 'B' rating which would place
it currently in second place behind savannah if it were listed

another very fine option (the one that the peers community found most
desirable) is pagure which is developed and
maintained by and for fedora - i dont recall if pagure has been
evaluated yet but from my experience it would also rate very well by the
GNU criteria - for example, debian has been debating between gitlab and
pagure as to which VCS hosting platform they should adopt in place of
their current FusionForge platform - which is just to say that debian
views it as a fine option for free software code hosting platform on par
with gitlab but it is completely off the radar on the GNU list
