I don't mind if we had an official github mirror. In fact, it may make the
project a little bit more accessible to the younger crowd.

I would be good, if we could identify any workflow issues (e.g. such as
the mailing issue raised here). Maybe some of the people who have hands-on

then should also consider adding this to the How to submit patches wiki
