Thanks for your comments.  I realize that a github mirror is not
required.  It's just something I hadn't considered.  When I did, I
started to wonder how the web based merge/pull request workflows would
interoperate.  I have the impression that it will be confusing at the
very least, so, yes, let's start with a *single* location for the
project, at least until we're all settled on GitLab.com

Again, thanks for the feedback,
