Just a few more notes...

We don't have to work against github. Actually, perhaps we better work
against an ASF's git repo and have it auto-mirrored to github. The way git
works, all you have to do to merge a PR is add the other repo as a remote,
fetch and merge. Github should detect that as closing the PR - and we can
probably verify that with them.

Perhaps one benefit of working on github is there is no lag and you can
immediately use their excellent history and diff tools.

Either way, I would recommend setting up a hook to email this list with
notifications about incoming PRs, just so everyone is notified. We can
continue the discussion here or there, whatever we find more convenient.

The rest of Stefan's worries are all covered by good guidelines on how to
work with PRs / github tools - voting etc.

So, how do we proceed?
