Current Isabelle/81536e5d8ea7 already has the important "isabelle
phabricator_setup_ssh" and a NEWS entry. The documentation should allow
experimentation on a fresh virtual Ubuntu 18.04 without any problems.
Production servers should wait until I know how to dump/backup/restore

Looking around, I've found more projects that are using the Phabricator
platform (see examples in the documentation). I will take some ideas
from them and apply them to isabelle-dev.sketis.net as the canonical

The Isabelle/Phabricator tools shall make it easy to run similar servers
for other purposes. E.g. I will have my own private instance on the same
virtual machine for co-authoring papers; this used to work via Bitbucket
in the past.

Eventually, we need to thank Bitbucket that it has liberated us from
centralized version control :-)
