I don't believe so.

The <iframe seamless> work, in particular, was announced on
webkit-dev, so folks shouldn't have trouble finding it.  Some (small)
parts of the branch have landed in trunk, but we put them through the
normal bugs.webkit.org review process.

My sense is that we're still experimenting with GitHub, so investing
in integration still seems a bit premature.  GitHub certainly made it
easy for me to contribute the navigation part of seamless to Eric's
branch, which seems like a win over him using SVN, patch files, or
even git locally.  I'll update the wiki after seamless lands to
reflect what we've learned.
