sf is a badly designed website. I have a much harder time to find the
things that I need on sf than on github.

I haven't serious compared sf with github. But I've seen more people
start using github rather than sf (some people also quit google code
for github), but I have not seen a single example that quit sf for
github. So I feel that github is the trend. Its pull request feature
is also very convenient.

Why these people start cloning into github? My interpretation is that
github is much more convenient and more people are using github. In
this case, why not just host the main repository in github and stop
using sf.
