I think this should be all or nothing operation - LibreOffice bugs moved to
new instance along with every account that touched the bug. Personally I
would like to have my account auto-moved, just like big mail systems do it.
Explanation before, during and after, good FAQ about the rationale and
change password link in welcome message would be welcomed. Not mentioning
all personal searches, settings, tags intact.
