Of course, if you made a "sanctioned" mirror in GitHub & BitBucket & LaunchPad owned by the actual project, then all these others could just fade away under the weight of an "official mirror."

That's not to say you couldn't save a ton of time by forking one of the existing ones, but making "One Repo (of each type) to Rule Them All" would be way helpful..even if it doesn't read as well as the original "One Ring..."
