I mainly meant that developers and interested folks using the repo to
get at the source for inspection and modification isn't necessarily
considered the same as using it as a regular entry point for most
users. For example, we use the mirror system for our actual [source]
releases. That said, if we are discussing a fairly small binding that
probably isn't much of an issue, and as I wondered, perhaps the github
mirror of the repo might be a useful tool there.
