So would something like make more sense - eg. package 
hosting service layer between github and copr.

Anyway, I think it's important to list the desired usecases. For example 
I don't see an easy way how to fork certain package and start 
development and testing some experimental feature that might not get 
into head in a couple more releases. For such usecase I would like to 
have either a dist-git private branch or a cloned git tree where I can 
do modifications, produce testing repo and eventually merge it.
