I don't want to be construed as throwing a spanner into your works but
I have a few comments about this.
0. If you're targeting free software projects, they *need* to be
public in order to work fine. You just need some restrictions on
commit etc. which most forges provide.
1. If you want to provide private repositories, your target audience
is changing into the non-free software crowd and their concerns would
be different. They'll be worried about putting their data on the net
on a publicly accessible server no matter how secure it is. Their data
requirements might be high and they'll have to pay large bandwidth
costs to get/put data onto your machines.

I know that github and think that bitbucket provide private repos. So,
you're competing with them.

Good luck though.
