having github mirror is fine, having libvirt.org post-push hook that
pushes it there is even better.  But it shouldn't be in any way
connected to the list IMHO.  Let's just get few people have their
account there closing the requests as suggested -- closed with a link
to the pull request that says something in the lines of:

  We don't do pull requests, instead just do:
    git config --local sendemail.to libvir-list at redhat.com
    git send-email [--cover-letter --annotate] master

I'm fine with pointing people there once in a while if we can't come
up with a script (I don't even know whether there's an API we could
use).  I use github once in a while.
