I've only looked at Redmine very briefly, but it does seem like an
interesting tool.

Re: Bugzilla migration, we're currently on Step 1 of what I've termed
the "2-Step process":
Step 1: Migrate the LibreOffice 'product' to its own instance of
Bugzilla running on FDO infra
Step 2: Migrate the LibreOffice bugtracker to TDF infra

To make our current migration go smoothly, I suggest that we continue
with the current Bugzilla migration process for now, and evaluate
Redmine for the future -- perhaps after we have Bugzilla running on
our own infra.

Jonathan: If there is interest in evaluating an alternative to
Bugzilla, please prepare a proposal page on the wiki (similar to
where you outline the case for moving to Redmine. We'll obviously want
to consider pros and cons of migration, the stability of Redmine as a
project, etc. A proposal like that would be a good first step in any
migration to a different bugtracking system.
