Hi Joe, Hi Alan, hi all

I meant to do that - close all open entries on bugzilla with a “CLOSED - DUPLICATE” status and point to Github instead. I was however worried that it would spam a lot of people with update mails, and could not find a more subtle solution when talking about it with the W3C systems team. 

I agree it’s overdue, though - will do.
