Re: Announcing GNOME's official GitHub mirror

A hook for github is more than welcome from my POV.

Why did I choose github? Because that's where everybody is these days.
Because we have nothing to lose by mirroring our repos there and we

You're entitled to your opinion but you must be aware that some people
disagree. Actually, is there a way for maintainers that don't want to
have their module on Github to opt out of this mirroring process?

While I too am surprised that GNOME didn't choose to mirror on gitorious
first, I don't think it's inherently bad that they're mirroring on
github as long as it's just used for mirroring. You can think of it as
another way/place to spread Free Software.

My question: can't we *also* mirror on gitorious? In addition, if really dies, can at least have a trusted second copy ?
