I think the more important part is, are the core developers going to 
accept pull/merge requests on github/gitorious, apply commits/patches 
from there, etc.?  If it's only going to be another read-only git 
mirror, it's kind of pointless.  I don't mean to say that it's a bad 
idea to have the "official Geany source" available on various projects 
sites to fork/hack on and stuff, just that it doesn't address the 
problem being discussed at all.
