Thats our general plan right now. One of the particulars that would
need to be ironed-out is to figure out how to deal with old/abandoned
user accounts. We'd like to migrate the data but leave the account
innactive/disabled if the user has no intention of returning.

That's one possible approach to the move, and something that we'll
definitely discuss with the leaders at FDO and TDF. As mentioned
previously, one approach would include a super-quick way for existing
users to indicate their support of the migration via an email reply or
a checkbox in their Bugzilla user account; either way, the process
will be pretty painless.

Excellent -- that'll be a helpful resource when we copy over the data.
