Which specific message message does it mention the actual features
that SF can do that github can not do? The first message seems already
mentioned some reasons why it should be migrated to GH.

I've already mentioned the reasons. It is not no good reason, it is
just that you may not have time.

The point is not to following the crawd. The point is to corroborate
my conclusion that GH is better than SF.

I am just providing my suggestion and what can be improved. I am not
gawk maintainer after all. I suppose whoever takes the role of
maintainer would like to do the job, therefore would be willing to
listen to suggestions.

I don't understand why migrating it is such a big deal. It has already
been done for gawk. But it does not survive unless it is done
officially by the gawk maintainer.
