This looks really quite nice, I should have checked for it before opening the

Just to caution -- for grokmirror to work, the remote server needs to provide the manifest file, which github does not. There is a "grok-dumb-pull" utility in grokmirror that works for mirroring repositories that don't provide a manifest, so that will work, but it's not as efficient (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man1/grok-dumb-pull.1.html).
