The plan has *never* been GitHub. The original plan was self hosted with a
*mirror* on GitHub. Now we'll instead use GitLab as main repository with a
mirror on GitHub.
With GitLab we have at least the option to move back to a self hosted
version keeping the same interface if the insanity of real world politics
should prove it necessary.

Also GitLab isn't that different from GitHub from a user's point of view.
Some options might be at different locations or might be named differently,
but it's still a web interface geared towards to same use case.
