For the needs of Bountysource I am allowing pull requests and GitHub
issues. Works well. (we I ser no equivalents of that within kde, btw, I
mean easy pay-for-fix and fundraising)
If someone pays or sends a fix, it can be via a pigeon or smoke signs,
whatever works. :)
That said, I make it clear that development is not happening on GitHub.

I am open to switch to repos collected within a 'KDE project' officially.
Especially if GitHub promotes us as on of the largest collection of
projects... why not.
