That's not the issue: the issue is having our official Github mirror 
allowing a git-hub based workflow. That should not be possible. As
Ivan said, if a project maintainer is really set on selling their
soul, then by all means use a private, personal, not-officially-KDE
github thing.

But the KDE message should be totally clear: this is just a mirror.
It's not the KDE workflow, because KDE is about freedom, not 
convenience.

Just like, for instance, https://github.com/GNOME/gimp/pulls...
