Not that it’s necessary, but a big NO from my side too. We need people to do things, not to tell us how we should do things.

Github is used by everybody and their moms. It’s convenient. I can review patches from their web intertace, I can comment there, everything is in one place. Or I can pull the branch and build it locally. I don’t need anything else.
