To clarify: infra has a bot that does N things and one of them is the
issue handling.  So the issue handling would have to be factored out
before it can be reused.

I know someone already factored out some parts of infrabot for reuse on
their channel --- not sure whether the issues tree was part of it ---
someone on #asfinfra would know.

Thanks for the information.  Not sure what the state of ASF's bugzilla
installation is re these.
