It is absolutely necessary that bug reports and changes to bug reports
are sent to the bugs mailing list.  

Bugzilla's "default" model of just assigning them to someone and having
that person responsible for dealing with them (or having to have someone
to out and hunt for bug reports to see if there is anything of interest)
is completely inappropriate for our development process...

We are also now telling people that they need to search for existing 
bug reports in a database without any existing PRs.  If we are going
to move on with having two completely different bug databases that 
have to be searched, etc. the distinction needs to be made more obvious.

I'm not at all against switching to bugzilla, but just hope the switch
has been planned well enough that we won't have to revert back just 
like the last time it was attempted.
