I'll update the page, then.

I'm not sure whether an official mirror is a good idea - it's another
service that would need to be maintained, and it seems that among
Twisted core devs there's not a lot of interest or expertise in
maintaining it. If Git-using contributors can take care of things
themselves without adding any extra administrative load on Twisted's
volunteers, what use would an official Git mirror be?
