However, we have solid hard data that it's a non-issue.

Gnome has been mirrored on github for nearly 2 years, in that time GTK has
had a grand total of 4 pull requests over time.
Most others (gedit, cheese, epiphany) have had 0.

Interestingly they have had literally hundreds of github "forks", which
implies it has led to sustantiable numbers of patches back using the
traditional methods

I've made a wiki page, which says how to turn a pull request into a
reviewboard submission.

If we get any questions we can then just copy and paste that, and don't
need to spend any time explaining. Bam, done.
