GitHub mirrors

Jeroen Ooms-2
I was wondering if somebody from the official GnuPG team wants to take
over the Github mirrors at https://github.com/gpg

I created these mirrors mostly a few years ago to make gnupg source
code more visible and accessible to millions of users. There is a
demand for this, the repositories are "followed" by hundreds of
people.

The mirroring script is basically a cron job that loops over the
various gnupg repos and runs:

  git clone --mirror git://git.gnupg.org/${REPO}.git
  (cd $REPO; git push --mirror https://github.com/gpg/${REPO}.git)

So it is very easy to do on any server, or github actions.

We're certainly interested in doing this, although the main purpose is
visibility. So it would continue to be just a mirror.

Please contact me or Werner so we can arrange things.

Kind regards,

The repositories have been brought under the maintainence of GnuPG in
the past days, so they are no longer inofficial. Otherwise, the status
has not changed: Please continue using the bug tracker or the mailing
lists for communication.

Thanks to Jeroen for allocating that namespace and keeping it in shape
in the past, and again for the offer to transfer it to us.
