Well, I have no experience with repo.or.cz, but my feeling is that
this is just a "classical" type of hosting where contributors cannot
easily create their own clones and have them hosted. Myself I'm a
hater of anything that has "social" in its title and all the chatting
nonsense (facebook, skype, ICQ to name some), but gitorious and github
are much more "useful" than "social".

This choice will also influence the workflow in which you will use
git. If contributors cannot have their branches hosted easily, then
the the Linus model (one pusher pulling from contributors) will be
harder to realize.
