As I work in LO's Bugzilla everyday I would like to know when the migration
process will start, then informed that it started and Bugzilla will be
unavailable, informed that it finished and FDO is disabled, greeted in new
system with password change link. I do not consider it spam.

So please ask for FDO upgrade to 4.2.7 before migration as it is currently
on Bugzilla 4.2.3, which have known security vulnerabilities and should be
updated ASAP - http://www.bugzilla.org/security/ 
Best regards.
