Let's split that into two pieces.

Git is a DVCS, which means that it can be at multiple places.  Using git 
for source control is an accepted practice at the ASF now.  GitHub can 
be one of the places.

 From the ASF perspective, GitHub is a mirror.  From GitHub's 
perspective, the ASF is a mirror.

None of this means that you can't use pull requests.  Examples:

(These just happen to be the top three hits on a Google search for 
"apache github pull requests").

The current tinkerpop mailing lists are indeed quite active.  I believe 
it would be possible for an ASF mailing list to be subscribed to each of 
these and satisfy ASF requirements in this manner.
