It helps when the problem space is well-defined. My sense (and I may
well be overlooking things here) is that currently there is a vague
(and accurate) sense that Fedora bugzilla is really sub-optimal, but
that no one really has a strong sense of how to fix it. I just want
everyone to not underestimate the pain of hacking bugzilla (the
codebase is vastly better than it was, but still grody) or to
underestimate the benefits that could come from good practices in an
integrated system, that admittedly don't happen right now, but which
will never happen in a loosely-coupled system without the man-decades
of work (soon to be man-century, still with no appreciably useful
result) which has been put into launchpad.
