Submission + - Ask Slashdot: self-hosting git repositories (techdirt.com)

At my company we use Git with some private repositories. It's easy to draw the conclusion that git-hosting in the cloud, like Github or Bitbucket, will lead to sharing the sourcecode with the NSA.
Self-hosting our Git repositories seems like a good and safe idea then.
The question then becomes, which software to use. It should be Open Source and under a Free License, that's for sure. Software like GitLab and GNU Savane seem good candidates. What other options are there, and how do they stack up against each other? What experience do people have with them?
