It's often not working right for me, losing comments, and being really slow.

You can freely export bug tracker stuff out of both sourceforge and 
github, neither one really locks you in.

The thing with Github is you get better integration with source code, 
like closing bugs from commit messages, closing bugs when associated PRs 
are closed, linking with source code, and also it means users don't have 
to have to have multiple logins and stuff (same could be said for using 
Github wikis too). Also the UI is nicer to use IMO.
