Just have the main devs do a double push to an unoffical mirror...

$ cat .git/config | grep pushurl
       pushurl = kde:releaseme
       pushurl = git@xxxxxxxxxx:apachelogger/releaseme.git

FWIW, I find it sad that as a community we apparently don't have
enough integrity so we can enable support for a third party CI tool
without having it undermine our tool, which just BTW doesn't even play
in the same league as far as large scale stack integration goes.
What sort of culture is that anyway where we stand in the way of devs
trying to make things more awesome because of "oh but this might maybe
will happen". I am so incredibly disappointed.
