The Django Framework moved from SVN to github in 2012but they kept their
own bug tracker (which they redesigned with some funding to make it more
usable): https://code.djangoproject.com/

I think they're a good example of an open source community which went
through the process of improving the way people can join the community
and contribute, they also raise funds to pay for hard tasks like
redesigning the website, organizing sprints, periodically hire a
"fellow" which reviews (accepts/closes and occasionally fixes) tickets
and so on.
Since they started doing this django has improved massively.

I understand the desire to self host, so I suggest to take a look at
gitlab community edition.
