That sounds like a great idea.

I suppose you'll want to use https://github.com/python/cpython, which I'm
currently maintaining as a read-only mirror. Let me know when you want to

org already, it should be easy to do.

I have to admit that I'm not a big expert on Mercurial --> Git converters
and the way I maintain this mirror may not be the best approach, so I
encourage you folks to find a VCS guru to look into this for the "real"
