Allow me to clarify:

You're free to use github mirrors, it's your right to do so. But I have
the right not to cooperate with this. All Gnome maintainers have this

If you're going to enable those github mirrors, make sure any maintainer
can easily turn off mirroring for their module.


By releasing your code under a Free license such as the GPL, you are
allowing others to take your code, and essentially, do what they want
with it. Free licenses by design are made to allow this, and if your app
is part of the Gnome project, then Gnome are free to "do what they want
with it", in this case, to create a *read-only* mirror on GitHub in the
intrest of convenience.
