I would guess: 

 - set up bugzilla (maybe we could do this for you) and start
   sending new bugs there
 - figure out how to extract all the bugs from via
 - figure out how to import bugs to bugzilla via script
 - do the translation there (debbugs->bugzilla) to get our old 
   bugs in bugzilla
 - maybe we need to make accept the old 
   debbugs format emails but put them in bugzilla, or maybe it 
   could just bounce a message back to the sender like "please
   go to and enter the bug on the web"

We haven't actually made an official decision to switch to bugzilla,
but I'm guessing not too many people will object, given how badly is sucking...
