Automating this would be great and I would use it elsewhere. I wish
github had this built in.

I agree that it's not a blocker to have only one way.

Plenty of projects use Github to coordinate development and still have
need for a mailing list. GIthub will not come to dominate dev@. As
long as we, eventually, deliver 2-way sync, we ensure that no one is
barred from contributing to the bulk of conversation.

This is a fun problem, but arguing about it isn't.

+1 on PRs to dev@
+1 on Jan taking point to deliver 2-way
-0 on him doing it manually for any period of time. Don't do this
unless you want to :).
