Logins are copied from Bugzilla with the issues they're associated  
with (which is cool, but that means that if you registered with a  
different email address from Bugzilla, I'll have to go in and merge  
the accounts). But for users, that's totally transparent.

Regarding the bugs themselves, I can write a simple script closing  
all moved bugs with a link to the new bug in Jira as a comment (of  
course, after the data-transfer is complete)
