You certainly have the right to do this under the GPL, but is it wise?
Without community signoff your repo is going to be an unofficial mirror.
 People will file bug reports there and not on our bug tracker; worse,
since you're the owner, they'll expect you to fix their issues.

If the community decides to go the GitHub route, these problems go away.
 But I don't think you'll have much success with that until you clearly
articulate *why* such a move is a good thing.  I currently have commit
privs to the GnuPG FAQ, for instance, so convince me: why should I
abandon a system that works well for GitHub?
