Hey guys,

The bugzilla upgrade planned for this Friday will break the FAS =>
Bugzilla sync.  The problem is that the current method of syncing is:

1) cron job fires
2) everyone is removed from the bugzilla fedora_contrib group.
3) everyone in fedorabugs is added to the fedora_contrib group

In the migrated system, we are not going to be able to do step #2
(because we will no longer have access to the db and there's no xmlrpc
call to do it.)

I'm planning on introducing this kludge to make things work:

1) user is removed from fedorabugs.
2) user is added to a new FAS table with a remove flag: bugzilla_queue
3) user is added to fedorabugs
4) user is added to bugzilla_queue with an add flag
5) cron job fires
6) user in bugzilla_queue are added or removed from fedora_contrib
according to the flag.
7) user is removed from bugzilla_queue
8) repeat from #6 until no more users in queue.

Unless someone can come up with a better method, I'll be implementing
this today.
