After some browsing, I've learned that github encourages people to make
private forks, as a playground or whatever.
That may be fine but doesn't really count as an argument for an
"official" hosting platform.

this move, whether it's good for mintty to be hosted on github.
And that question of yours is moot since mintty already is on GitHub, in
26 different forks. Most of them are "Automatically exported from
Google Code." and some not even fully up-to-date.
That fork does not include the issue list (which could probably be
added); also github/cygwinports is a github "user account" which,
gives limited flexibility of assigning access rights. I guess as a
package maintainer, admin rights of the official repository would be
useful, which is an option with a github "organisation account".
Then closest to Cygwin is the one from cygwinports (Yaakov).
That should probably be the version going ahead with...
So I see 3 options:
â Yaakov could turn github/cygwinports into an "organisation account"
and give me admin rights for the mintty repository.
â I could create a dedicated account and repository.
â I could host mintty somewhere else.

My concerns against github are different; I have a strong impression
that it encourages anarchic project handling,
and I feel the concept of everybody being allowed to create forks and
submit "pull requests" may not be good for a core project.
I personally avoid github; it encourages the use of proprietary code ...
