** [tickets:#6531] Project metadata importer for github**

**Status:** code-review
**Labels:** github import 42cc

Create an importer that given a github repo name imports the basic information using the github
API, into Allura.  See ForgeImporter's entry points and the `GoogleCodeProjectImporter` and
`TracProjectImporter` classes as similar examples.

Github doesn't have a lot of metadata.  `description` can go into the "summary" field.  homepage
can be set.  The programming language could be mapped to a programming language trove in Allura.
 But determining all those mappings (by hand or with some algorithm) is going to be too much
work, and not worth it I think.
