FWIW, at Eclipse we've tried mirroring a number of projects to Github, 
and we've found it to be generally broken and have since given up on 
Github mirrors.  We host our Git code in-house as well, for the same 
reason you've mentioned.

As a long-time bugzilla user & admin, I'm happy to see this discussion 
happening.  Thanks to the team for all the great work.
