Hmm... Users familiar with GitHub in other projects will not stop
submitting pull requests on the KDE GitHub mirror as long as that's
turned on, and GitHub doesn't even let us turn off pull requests.
Should we get rid of the GitHub mirror? Or should we keep closing pull
requests and telling people to send their patches to Invent instead?

the GitHub mirror :P)
