  commit a9fa862efc67434a6a880ded4f7af9cacb0f67ac

    add files to dissuade users from filing GH pull requests

This adds two files to the .github directory. These would be displayed to users
attempting to file pull requests on the GitHub mirror.  This happens rarely,
but often enough that it would be good to try to avoid it.  GitHub will not
allow us to simply disable PRs.

This branch fails tests.

If the files are not in the MANIFEST, this is a failure.  If they *are* in the
manifest, there is a porting failure because directories beginning with dots
are not allowed.

Is there an existing solution to this that I'm unaware of?  Do we really need
these files in the manifest, since we don't need them in release tarballs?

I don't mind spending more effort here, but I'm hoping someone knows the
almost-no-effort solution already.
