Because of how Jakarta commons is setup in bugzilla and would need to be 
setup in JIRA, the transition process doesn't lose anything 
(infrastructure side) from a partial move.  Individual projects in 
commons will need to know the right bug tracker to link to, but we've 
also discussed setting up that would host the 
current bugzilla and scarac installs along with the new JIRA install.

Honestly, we have enough projects to migrate as is.  I don't see a need 
to encourage projects.  I say let's just manage the projects who have 
already requested it, then every project can potentially use JIRA and 
see whether they like it or not.
