Eli, Thanks for setting this up. People are evidently finding it quite useful and are wondering if it could be more frequently run. We don't want you to have to absorb the bandwidth costs yourself, though. Is the code you use available somewhere? It shouldn't be hard to set up the cron job on PSF infrastructure.

Just a quick update on this. I've finally found time to set up a VPS at DigitalOcean of myself, and I'm moving the cronjob for updating the Github mirrors to it. This lets me ramp up the update frequency. For now I'll set it to every 4 hours, but in the future I may make it even more frequent. Hopefully this will not overrun my bandwidth allocation :)
The CPython mirror (https://github.com/python/cpython) has been pretty popular so far, with over 70 forks.

https://github.com/python/cpython is now live as a semi-official, *read only* Github mirror of the CPython Mercurial repository. Let me know if you have any problems/concerns.
I still haven't decided how often to update it (considering either just N times a day, or maybe use a Hg hook for batching). Suggestions are welcome.
The methodology I used to create it is via hg-fast-export. I also tried to pack and gc the git repo as much as possible before the initial Github push - it went down from almost ~2GB to ~200MB (so this is the size of a fresh clone right now).
P.S. thanks Jesse for the keys to https://github.com/python
