I will check the latest version but I was under the impression bugzilla 
had a fine grained permission system. Private access is definitely 
supported by bugzilla, it's needed for security related bugs in Mozilla.

There is a plan for such a move in the near future ?

Well it's just a matter of creating the projects and the associated 
version numbers, the bugzilla admin is the only one able to do this. 
Then the developpers can mass move the bugs to the new products, I think 
I could do that for all commons components in less that 1 hour once the 
projects are created.
