If you are going to use Github as the main platform, it sounds good to me. I think it's better to have all the issues in one system thus it's worth the problems with original reporters not having a Github account or just not following the new ticket.
If you have not decided which platform it will be, I suggest taking a look at Phabricator before doing the migration. Also it seems that Kallithea is another alternative which has been discussed on PyCon.
