the Gerrit mirrors don't make any sense. No commits will be submitted
for those, but it will confuse people who will inevitably ask about
their role.

To make it even more transparent for new people, I would alter the
description for

to include the sentence:
"This project was merged into Shiboken around the time PySide migrated
to Qt Project."

It is more to Thomas, but IIRC the GitHub proved to have a much better
uptime history, so until Gerrit is open to public, I'd rather not
point everything to Gitorious, because it is painful for people who
study source from browser. GitHub descriptions could be modified to
point to patch submission guide so that people avoid submitting pull
requests for the mirrors.
