While I like the idea of making it easier for people to submit patches, I'm
not sure setting up a read-only GitHub mirror is the answer.
In my day job, I happen to maintain a huge GitHub mirror of a large open
source code repository where the upstream has not yet moved to Git.
Unfortunately, what happens is that people submit pull requests against the
read-only mirror, but the upstream maintainers rarely if ever look at the
pull requests. We end up closing most of the pull requests with a message
that says "Contact upstream directly and try to get your patches to them."
I also think it would be non-trivial to map Fedora users to GitHub
accounts, or to keep said information in sync.
