I'm not sure that they should since I have multiple views on this:

1. GitHub notification remains on dev@.
- Everyone reads the dev@;
- You can participant in GH discussion by replying on related the email;
- Nothing need to do;
- It's automatically generated email;
- Not at all people are interested in all our subprojects (fauxtoners
may'd like to receive www- related mails, but www- folks unlikely
would be interested in fabric changes etc.);

2. Move GitHub notifications to gh@ ML.
- Less noise on dev@;
- If you're not subscribed on gh@ and doesn't watch project on GitHub,
you could easily miss the notification about pull request;

3. Disable GitHub emails at all on ASF MLs, add all the folks as
watchers of all our subprojects and let them unscribe from those they
don't like to follow.
- Everyone follows things they likes;
- No Pull Requests lacks of attention (theoretically);
- No automatically generated emails;
- All the related conversation happens not on ASF baseground, but GitHub one;
- Daniel will be sad;

Not sure which one is the best since it's very depends on overall
people workflow and ASF rules.
