It means you will log in to our Trac installation using your GitHub credentials, instead of via Mac OS Forge credentials as it is now.

There will be no syncing of anything between GitHub pull requests and Trac tickets because they are different entities. Trac tickets are where bug reports and other issues will be filed. Currently, if someone has a fix for an issue, they would attach a patch to the Trac ticket; in future, they will instead open a GitHub pull request and paste a link to the pull request into the ticket (or paste a link to the Trac ticket into the pull request; I'm not sure if we've decided that detail yet).
And as Rainer said, there may be some simple changes for which it is sufficient to just submit a pull request, without opening a corresponding Trac ticket. We haven't defined what those situations would be yet.
