That's just useless, and it looks terrible.

If you're going to bother being on GitHub, put useful things there so
people can see that we do make interesting things. Just do the mirror
thing just like libvirt, GNOME, KDE, PLD Linux, and countless other
projects do. Just make sure to set in the description "Mirror of
<correct-url>. Contribute there."

Think of the target audience. If you just do a dumb redirect, no one
is going to bother.

And of course, we should have a nice pointer to places where people
can do things, which includes projects on Pagure, GitHub, and GitLab.
