While this is perfectly OK, a lot more people are watching pull requests:
By submitting a pull request, it will be seen by multiple developers
multiple times which is not necessarily true for Trac (which is
perfectly suitable for bug reports, in particular when ports have
maintainers, but it gets attention from far less people).

GitHub is also much better than Trac to get this kind of feedback.
