I think John's suggestion is the most expedient. We can lock each issue with a
message to move it to FS - this will serve as notification. Also, an issue
template stating the Github issues for the LEDE repo are to be posted to FS can
be created (shortly). 

Pulling all the Github issues and comments into FS is possible with some amount
to scripting-fu (ugh). It will also be necessary to create some sort of FS user
info (name/email) to own each element (report, comment, etc.). I don't think
automatically creating FS accounts is the best strategy.
