Yes it is.

I don't have any special preferences about this.

For github it looks like someone has to pay:

I suspect, though I didn't ask, that Red Hat won't be willing to pay
for this, because Red Hat indirectly supports Fedora's git hosting
(http://git.fedorahosted.org/) which is rubbish compared to github,
but free.

I was always reluctant to use fedorahosted since it implies that
libguestfs is somehow tied to Fedora, which it isn't (in fact quite
the opposite: some Fedora members have been actively hostile to
libguestfs).  Perhaps this is not a concern -- after all, we use
plenty of projects that are hosted on LaunchPad.

Another possibility is OpenShift (https://openshift.redhat.com).
