Albert, I think you are just used to reviewboard, it took me weeks to get
used to review board ;)

>From what I've read in this thread, nobody is against having Github solely
as a mirror. I propose we do that, mirror, and we leave pull requests and
issues as an opt-in feature.

received valuable patches there. That's a big enough reason for me to want
Github's pull requests (and to spend 15 minutes learning how to use them),
but I understand not everybody wants to learn a new and non-free tool.
