As this is for vendor-specific stuff, I think there is a good chance
that there will not be a lot of cross-vendor reviews.

It seems like 2 and 3 are the same except for ownership and location of
the repos. I think it makes more sense for vendors to own their own
repos on stackforge at least until there is enough interest outside of
that vendor to get good external reviews.
