I'd say use Debian wiki and Debian Alioth for FreedomBox development, 
and leave it to each upstream project to pick whatever they see fit: The 
more that can have a life untied from FreedomBox the better!

For upstream projects that seek to avoid a central point of failure I 
recommend Ikiwiki as wiki with git as storage, and SD (Small Defects) 
for issue tracking.  Both are packaged for Debian.

I am not familiar with fossil but it seems from a quick glance to be 
possible to host locally but not (easily?) to distribute to avoid your 
local host to become a single point of failure.
