Bug Description

In the light of the announcement that LP can now host git repositories, kindly add support to automatically VcsImports from external repositories/platforms (e.g. github) directly as git repository.

So the import request
https://code.launchpad.net/+code-imports/+new
 would rather create a git repo at LP if git repos are imported

Right, we've been talking about the design for this but haven't started implementation yet. It's also useful (though not required) for https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/1453022.

Just for the sake of giving this a bit historical background:

the original bug report was triggered by the following Q&A:
code import from GitHub failing - https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/264432

Being the original report, I received the status updates over the last months picking up pace.

So I just want to send a very huge thank you to Colin Watson for addressing this issue, working on it constantly and finally releasing a fix.

The very nice consequence is that we can now re-enable the automatic builds for any software developed & hosted primary on Github!
(maybe you'd want to add this to your blog post)

Thanks so much!
