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

I didn't really mean those questions for you, but rather, they're somewhat rhetorical. The impression I'm getting is that Bugzilla is some kind of mammoth app that requires a huge investment of resources to run & maintain. I thought it was just an enterprise-level bug tracker. It's deployed quite widely.
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
Lots of pre-work went into that to determine its feasibility.  With
bugzilla we're not even at the "could we" stage, we're still at the
"should we try" stage of which I only play a small part of.

It is my sincere hope that this thread will bring the "could we" stage just a little bit closer by getting more eyes on it and more minds engaged in it.
