For some reason, I never saw Bryce's reply - maybe it only went to the
list? After a discussion with Uli a few days ago, I migrated the Git
repository hosting as well as the Bugzilla bugs. It is no longer
possible to file new bugs on Cairo for Bugzilla, and trying to push to
the old URL will fail with a message telling you how to recover your
GitLab account.

I've given organisation 'owner' access to both Bryce and Carl, who can
then give others access (or remove it) as they see fit.

Apologies for the inconvenience, as I hadn't seen the reply. Hope it
doesn't derail anything. If there are any issues, please either
contact me directly, or file an issue at
