If anything it may be nice to mirror some "important" Debian software (say
dpkg, debhelper, lintian, ...) on GitHub like the Apache Foundation does [0]
(also see [1]).

AFAIK those mirrors are completely automated and would allow GitHub users to
follow the development of a few interesting Debian projects. Also, I don't know
of the other git hosting platforms, but it may be done there as well.
