[Freeswitch-dev] mirror to GitHub?

For me the biggest value in having a mirror would be a backup location to
clone FreeSWITCH in case the main repo is down. Not that it happens very
often, it just always seems to happen at the very moment I’m doing
something time sensitive and important ;)

I could certainly maintain my own mirror for that purpose, it just seems
like a community mirror would solve the problem for everyone in one go.

If we didn’t want to do it via Github (which I can certainly understand
given the issue duplication/etc), I’d vote for having it on a secondary
server in the FreeSWITCH ecosystem.
