We obviously agree here, great.

All of this can be done even if you never use the "merge" button since
this would be the only piece that'd require a writable repository at
github - right?  As long as we get mail notifications for pull requests
and discussions on PRs to this list, this is totally fine I'm sure.

You can have all those benefits of PRs except for the automated merge
via a Web-UI with a read-only github mirror as well.

Personally I don't think we'd need to vote on every pull request - there
is no need to handle them differently from JIRA tickets IMHO.  My own
concerns (not sure whether they match any official ASF concern, if there
is any) are cultural not legal.

Many projects use ASF CI infrastructure without managing it themselves.
Maybe I just lost track of the past efforts, is it because Lucene.NET
would need special components in Jenkins slaves that we'd need to step

Understood.  I'm all for giving Travis CI a try on the mirror.
