We have quite a bit of control over that, though access to the
github.com/apache settings is limited to just a few admins (currently
me, Gavin and Tony). Do you already have specific changes that you'd
like implemented?

As mentioned by Daniel, the Git mirror was created as a response to
http://markmail.org/message/gachaz3dcxukrpph. By default all
git.apache.org mirrors also show up on github.com/apache, but we can
change that per-project if needed.

The GitHub pull request notification you saw on dev@subversion, is a
result of our work to better integrate GitHub workflows with those at
Apache. The idea here is to send the issue to dev@ from where the
project community can deal with it in whichever way it prefers, for
example by telling the contributor to use other channels, by filing a
bug for the issue, or by simply directly applying the contributed
patch.

Currently the pull request notification doesn't come with a full diff,
but we can add that if desired.

Just let us know what you want changed and we'll take care of it.

BR,
