All of the repos under Gnucash on github are mirrors of code. I've updated the Git wiki page as you requested. Unfortunately there's no easy way to tell Github not to accept commits from you without removing your "owner" privs.

The only dependency difference so far between master and maint is boost, and that's handled in the build script by checking $GNUCASH_SCM_REV.
