Telsa has strongly objected to the lack of an email interface, but I
do think the other issues outweigh this (waiting for Telsa to flame

We're looking at adding a couple more machines to * at Red
Hat and spreading the existing services among them, at that point
adding the additional load of Bugzilla would be no problem. Hopefully
this will be in very near future, we are actively moving forward on

In the meantime you could use a local copy of Bugzilla to figure out
how to set up Bugzilla and migrate the old bugs, then when we get the
new machine we can give you an account and you can hop on there and
get it going. Or we can get it going and you can run your magic
debbugs converter.

I think Miguel can give you an account on that machine.
