We created the Open Hardware Repository when we identified that need at
CERN and other Physics labs: http://www.ohwr.org/

We are very happy with all the technical choices we took: Chiliproject,
Git, Sympa...

However the focus of ohwr.org is controls and data acquisition hardware,
and we must keep it that way for scalability/maintainability reasons. I
compiled a short list of other sites people might want to use for
hosting, at the end of http://www.ohwr.org/projects/ohr-meta/wiki/

I think these days choices abound and it is also relatively
straight-forward to set up one's own hosting solution.
