I am not sure to which part of Felix reply you are responding, but anyway ...

Paul Boddie wrote a good article about using "walled gardens" in the context of
Free Software (in the context of the python community):
For me it feels reasonable to welcome contributions through the infrastructure
of an external commercial entity (github). Insisting on its solely usage sounds
rather short-sighted to me.

Back to the topic:
Having a discussion about a suitable hosting is perfectly fine, while the
decision is surely at the discretion of the maintainers (ubus: Felix?).
Felix described his specific reasons why he considers the current hosting to be
suitable for this piece of software.
Thus I am confused that you are referring to your personal perception of the
current "norm" of development instead of arguing within the scope of this
specific project.
