Yeah.

Note that there is no reason not to have both. We know several
projects - e.g. pgadmin - has that. It's trivial to have a project
that's hosted on git.postgresql.org to automatically push mirroring to
github, and you can then use github download pages for example.

(The system is fully automated - if more people want to start using
it, I'll include it in the web interface)

No, definitely not. For one thing, the management stuff for
git.postgresql.org doesn't scale that way at all.
