Its not a show stopper: pull request can be handled by git itself,
adding the github remote repo and pull the feature branch from there
into the gitlab origin. Vice versa the github users are be able to
fork from gitlab origin this way. 

 What I mean: there is no need for a github mirror. 

Stay with a Single-Point-of-Definition and do not mirror, it will
only confuse the github users.
