I'm afraid that it may be unlikely to be worth the effort, judging by 
the state of the various attempted mirrors on GitHub over the past years.

OpenJDK does not work with pull requests, so mirroring does not really 
seem to provide long term, practical benefits.

For a spirited discussion of some of the problems one may have with 
using GitHub pull requests without also subscribing to a GitHub-specific 
workflow, please refer to the comments from Linus Torvalds, the creator 
of Git in this thread: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/pull/17 .
