Discourse vs Github

It seems both discussion spaces are very similar, both are meant for bugs, feature requests and questions.
Are there any preferences which to use for what? Or should I choose just randomly, by website design? Choosing is not hard, just weird.
But it is a little annoying to check if your question is already asked in both places.

Don’t you think it would be better to have some policy on what goes where? For example, encourage users to report bugs in github, but ask for advice and discuss new features here?

You’ve got it exactly right in your last sentence. Github should be reserved for bugs. And discussion (and requests) should be on the discourse. I think this is detailed somewhere, and if you try to create an issue on GitHub I know you will be told exactly that.
