If you add a CONTRIBUTING file to the root of your repo, GitHub will add a link when a contributor tries to create a PR [1].

That is a fantastic idea.  In fact, it's one of the bugs currently blocking the "Reduce Barriers to Entry" theme here at Eclipse.  Please see:

It is possible to close pull requests, but the Foundation would have to replicate permissions to the mirrors for all projects to give the respective committers "Push" permissions to their repos on GitHub.

I suspect this would be a big maintenance issue though as that would mean we'd have to keep them in sync somehow with the Foundation systems.

That may not be such a big maintenance burden. In the bug below, we're deploying a script that will do such a sync.  The only requirement will be for projects to add the Github repo to their repo list on PMI.
