Nothing personal but you're not in a position to make this judgement.
We've not even setup a test version populated with data about the size
that would be required for Fedora so no analysis of what we could or could
not do has been done.

I know that. I'm just a Fedora user. This thread is exploratory, and I'm trying to get this kind of information out there. I didn't mean to speak for the team at all, I just wanted to say I think greater problems have been tackled.

Is Bugzilla so hard to manage, though?  Is the data really that enormous?

Another example that comes to mind, though definitely not apples-to-apples, was the migration from MoinMoin to MediaWiki. Yes, I realize Bugzilla does much more than a wiki does, but I witnessed a lot of the process of that migration, and yes, it's still ongoing, and there was stumbling along the way. But the community really came together on that and helped-out. I also realize that currently, Bugzilla is much more of a core app to both Fedora & Red Hat than the Wiki is or likely ever will be. But the concept of migrating a system is not new to Fedora. The key is how can we leverage the community to help with it.
