I think its even possible to just mentioning that in any github.com/kde page.

"You are looking for our code on github.com?

We don´t use github.com due to …, but you can find out code on … and we also 
have a nice way to provide reviews in … and our task and project management is 
at …

We look forward to your contributions."

So I see no need to provide an actual mirror of the source code in order to 
point to KDE infrastructure.

I was a bit confused as first there was talk about disabling pull requests. 
Yet now the github.com/kde mirror is up, but I also read its not possible to 
disable pull requests. I´d expected that someone would check this before the 

Anyway, for bug triaging I will just look at bugzilla for now. And since I 
didn´t write more than a few lines of code so far, except for this idea I 
leave this discussion to those who contributed more code.
