What we had in mind was a much more open approach, building off the contribution mechanisms already supported by GitHub. The thing about linking back to projects (not that it's in any way a bad thing to do so) is that those sources might move or go away in time. I think there's great virtue to copies, especially when those copies are versioned and can be updated. I also think this might serve as an alternate archive for project data.
