Hi all,

the fifth service on the migration list is Bugzilla. For the Bugzilla, the 
situation is significantly different, because we need to discuss here 
before any steps are taken.

-- Migration status --

Bugzilla is on Tim's original infrastructure. Therefore, no one else can 
manage the current instance. And there are various issues that we are 
currently unable to resolve, such as problem with login when https is 
used. So it definitely needs some change.

-- What needs to be done --

First of all, we need to discuss and decide whether we want to continue 
using Bugzilla.

As mentioned earlier, TGW is now used as a comprehensive workspace. And 
TGW contains Issues that can be used instead of bug reports in a separate 
Bugzilla. There are several benefits to using Issues. Above all, Issues 
are well integrated into the development workflow. It also provides good 
comfort - for example, it is possible to use comment formatting to make it 
more readable and clear. At the same time, it seems like a good idea to 
use one problem reporting tool rather than two independent ones.

If we find a consensus that there is no significant reason to use Bugzilla, 
we need to decide how to deal with existing bug reports. There are two 

1) Migrate Bugzilla to a new instance, which will be locked for adding new 
bug reports. This can be done more easily. However, the problem remains 
that there will continue to be two places for users to look for problem 

2) Migrate bug reports from Bugzilla into Issues in TGW and then stop 
Bugzilla completely. Although it is likely to be more difficult to do, I 
think it would be a better solution.
