I have had much better user experience with bitbucket and github service.
One thing github got right is how continuous integration systems
(travis-ci, jenkins and others) can test pull requests and tell you if your
changes would pass or break the tests. obsoleting patches is easy as well
(updating the pull-request branch).

You can also look at gerrit which many communities use.
I personally don't like the user interface, but the tooling is nice.
