I personally think that the actual benefit of github has more to do
with attracting developers to the project rather than for use by
developers who have already been converted.

It seems sensible that you would have a public facing repository on
github, where people can get at your code and use a contribution
process that's easy to learn[0] to try to get people involved. On top
of that, you could of course sync up your own servers periodically
with github and perform tool integration and releases from there.

If you're thinking of Trac specifically, there is a service hook at
github for it, but I don't really know if that's a reasonable option.
