That's a question for Scott.  But TagLib is still his software, and he
still develops it in KDE's Subversion server.  If you are planning on
forking it to an entirely new piece of software, that's something else.

I should also mention that Github is not open-source.  Ruby on Rails may
not care about that, but many of the KDE-affiliated people do (not sure
about Scott).

But there's a better solution.  KDE is transitioning to Git, using a
copy of Gitorious (which *is* open-source).  The first KDE application
will be testing the waters with a transition quite soon now.  If Scott
is amenable, I would suggest putting in a request to get TagLib in as
one of the early transitioners.  The benefits of Github + open-source +
KDE support is a winning combination.
