I wasn't completely clear.  What I meant to ask:

"Are the github issues (and labels) set up well enough for Trac to be
disabled for accepting new bugs and to point users filing new bugs to
github instead?"

(The answer to which is "no", based on your reply).

I was under the impression that github issues could become the default
for new bugs even before the old bugs were moved, but perhaps I
misunderstood.  I can see arguments for and against this. The primary
argument in favor is that it would be easier to transition old bugs to
a known set of labels, rather than trying to define the labels at the
same time as moving the bugs.  (This is more a concern on my part
about stepping on toes than a difficulty in knowing what labels are
needed, though.)
