Add your own mirror.  Nothing is stopping you from doing it.  But the
canonical upstream repo should NOT live on github.com, since that site
actively promotes the use of non-free software.  I don't care if you
want to pull from github, but I do care if you make me try to use
github's add-on features above and beyond what I can already do using
only free software without using github.

In other words, if you DO add a github mirror, discussion of patches
will still need to take place on this list, and not move to github.
