Beeing able to use github is not the same, as beeing forced to use
github. (Off topic: I choose to be dependent on, not the contrary).

I am personally tired to see all this history going in the hand of a
privately held company.. And I am tired none pay attention to such

Anyway,  I would prefer to let the choice to people and having a
channel between the tools. If we also get the diff from the PRs in the
mailing list and if people are able to answer to them without needing
to open an account on github, then all my concerns are gone.
