I myself just searched for "hurd" on github, and picked the right one
among the results :-)

To get commit access, you need to register at github, and get the owner
of the repository (Madhusudan) to add you to it.

Indeed there is none... Though I'm not sure this is a problem,
considering that it was only meant as a temporary measure for the
specific needs of GSoC?

Now what about the promised Savannah backup? :-)

Yeah, I understood it as well now that it's fixed again, and seeing that
there were several web commits that didn't show up in the external
repository before...

I still wonder though what the purpose of this internal/external
distinction is in the first place; and why there are no safeguards
against such situations...
