Although I've hated git for a long while (and I still don't like it very much), I firmly believe Github is the right thing for Twisted. My incredibly unscientific poll amongst people who like Twisted but aren't devs is that they all love or at least like Github, and a surprising number has a distaste for Launchpad (unfamiliarity with Bazaar, perceived developer-unfriendly UI, slowness).

I vote for GitHub too. Git's a pain but powerful (no need for combinator), and GitHub has a pretty good API into everything - low level repo innards, to issues/tickets. Also, GitHub's webhook system can easily integrate with buildbot (we used to do it at TweetDeck). Code review is doable by pull requests too. You can even map twistedmatrix.com to a github hosted website, which itself would be a repo. Oh, and the wikis are git repos too. 

Given all these tools, I see mappings for all of Twisted's bits and pieces (unless I'm missing something).
