Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] 61 Contributions submitted on GitHub

I agree with Alex on that. Although the CONTRIBUTING file is a good idea, it's probably not enough. People generally don't read documentation first. They do things, and if it doesn't work they read documentation. I don't believe that the CONTRIBUTING file will ensure that all contributors used to working the "GitHub way" will work with those Eclipse mirrors repo in the "Eclipse way".
We should find a way to disable Pull Requests (and issues tracking, but it's already the case for most repo) from mirror repo. So people who'll try to contribute won't be able to do it, so they'll read the CONTRIBUTING file to know how to conrtibute.
