Yes I'm uneasy about that too. I thought "Well mirrors and copies of code are 
good so let them get on with that" but github is tantalizingly convenient and 
I fear we've started to open Pandora's Box here.

Github is convenient so if we offer that I'm scared that we will be pulled in 
there because it is more convenient to use then our infrastructure.

I also agree with Friedrich W. H. Kossebau's points in the other branch of 
this thread.
