Fair enough, but as I understand matters, Scarab does not support any
migration path from GNATS->Scarab, but does from Bugzilla->Scarab.
So, all of this work/rearrangment won't be lost if we decide to
switch to Scarab?  It'll be painless, right?

What's the timeframe on deploying Scarab for Jakarta?  Since the
Jakarta people are lightyears ahead of us when it comes to bug 
systems, I'll be content to just piggy-back on whatever issue
tracking system Jakarta uses.  But, if the switch is imminent
(say a week?), then we should hold off doing anything with
Bugzilla for sure.

Joshua Slive ( and Will Rowe (
volunteered themselves.  Seems like a reasonable start for now.
I don't know what your policy is on admins, but I'd posit that
any committer can be trusted.

Okay.  So, if we get a bugs@httpd ML created, we can set all of the
components to be "owned" by bugs@httpd.

Cool.  We may rename the projects once we figure out how we want to
name things.  I'll make sure I drop you a line once we're happy with
the project names.
