I suggest you put each package in its own repository, because our R tooling
(e.g. Travis CI, etc.) works best if you do that. This is quite easy to do
nowadays: https://stackoverflow.com/a/17864475/604364

You don't need do that. It is unlikely that they would remove *someone
else's* repository, anyway, unless the repository has some copyright or
license problems. Which it does not, since your packages are GPL.

GitHub as a company does not manage https://github.com/rforge. This read
only mirror was set up by a fellow GitHub user, and it is best if it is
kept as a read-only mirror.

Instead, you can do as Duncan suggested, and put a README in your R-Forge
repository, that points to *your* GitHub repositor(y/ies). Then the
https://github.com/rforge/ecdat read only mirror will pick this up and will
point there as well.
