This is a longer term aspiration, but actually, in theory we could make the API fetches pluggable so that it's also possible to fetch from Github.

That'd allow easy indexing of personal/private repos on Github.

I'm now not so sure whether I want the headache of this as the needs it was intended to serve are actually already mostly met in other ways.

I mirror my Github repos into Gitlab, so issues get updated for Github commits which mention them (could also have been done via webhook, but it allows the commit to be viewed in GL/GILS).

I've got a wrapper around the Github CLI which mirrors issues from my repo down into text files:

for repo in $REPOS
    mkdir -p $repo
    cd $repo
    for id in `gh issue list -R $repo -L 3000 --state all | awk '{print $1}'`
        gh issue view -c -R $repo $id | tee issue_$
    cd $BASEDIR

Where BASEDIR is the directory to write into, and REPOS is a space seperated list of repos pulled from the GH API.

That allows my search engine to index my GH issues, which was the only real reason for wanting to include them.

I'm open to reconsidering later, but for now, I'll close as Won't Fix
