Subject: Please provide mirror on github (or some other fully-featured git hosting)

Could you please consider mirroring debugedit's repository on some
fully-featured git hosting like GitHub?

Long story short, gitweb on sourceware is missing two features I do
really appreciate:

1. Tag/release feeds, i.e. being able to track new tags via RSS/Atom
reader.  Gitweb only supports 'all commits' feed.  I suppose it's not
that bad with relatively low number of commits but then if all
projects...  I suppose you get where this is going.

2. Snapshots.  I mean, I just spend 15 minutes trying to find a way to
grab a newer-than-release tree in a tarball from sourceware and there
doesn't seem to be any.

Setting up a mirror on GitHub would provide the missing features
and also increase project's visibility.  But anything with fully-
featured web frontend would work, e.g. cgit, gitlab...

Best regards,
Michał Górny
