More or less yes. I think it is a bit like when you document a project
on github.

The gh-pages branch is disconnected from the source code (ie, there are
two DAGs, but they live in the same repository.

Of course, if that are disjoint DAGs, it's easy to make them live in
different repositories. But git allows to handle several disjoint DAGs
in one repository. (My Definition: A "repository" is simply a collection
of git-objects (and the pointers to form DAGs) under a common name).

I don't think that a bug directory in every sub-dir would make sense.
Bugs sometimes touch different parts of a program and usually the
submitter of the bug has no idea, in which part of program the bug might
be hidden.

Otherwise I don't understand "overlapping git-managed directories" to be
able to give a good answer.

Well, that's what I found and what (I think) would be good, but read
There are lots of things to consider before one embarks on a particular
distributed bugtracker. Obviously, in contrast to distributed version
control systems, the world hasn't yet seen a great acceptance of
distributed bugtrackers.
