I've never encounted this problem on, only Github Enterprise. 
I've only ever dealt with smaller projects on and it's 
possible that the former is better managed than Github Enterprise 
installations tend to be. In the case of my particular employer, most 
operations were decently fast, but opening, comments, and merging PRs 
was extremely slow. This has only gotten slower over time with newer 
versions of Github Enterprise and as the size of our projects have grown.

I think we're more likely to see opened to the 
public before we'll see the code on Github/Bitbucket. The source-code is 
already open to the public. The main benefit of moving it to 
Github/Bitbucket would be to provide 2-way communication in the form of 
bug reports and PRs. Given Oracle's business model, I don't see that 
happening any time soon.
