The problem I see here is that github (and git) encourages local branching, so peoples experiments
and patches are not always going to be public.

There's still the outstanding issue of how to close off pull requests - it's been in JIRA
for months with no comment or resolution.

I'd add all work must be done in public. Having code in github is slightly problematic from
that point of view as while it's public ASF has little control over it.

Having a github mirror of an a ASF hosted git repro (which we basically have now) seems the
best way forward to me.
