Yes, passwords should be invalidated. Good to hear that the password
reset worked for you without problems.

Bugmail is currently enabled for regular user accounts.

I've disabled bugmail for the default assignee
(libreoffice-bugs at lists.FDO), and I've added a warning message asking
people to try to avoid heavily-spamming people who aren't involved in
the migration process.

Excellent :-)

Ayup, we can remove extraneous information there.

Yes; we can decide whether or not that's a useful component.

I'll confirm that piece with Tollef.

Yep. We'll start with as minor a change-over as possible, to make
things simpler, but will cleanup keywords shortly thereafter.

I've stubbed-in some basic 'This is a Test Instance!' warning
information, but I expect that Design may have some ideas about how we
can create a unique, beautiful, and functional theme for our Bugzilla.

We'll have some pieces of the Bugzilla code stored in git, but I'll
need to do some further review to make sure that I include all of the
right pieces in the .gitignore file. The git repo will probably live
on our gerrit install, but people are free to have other copies synced
elsewhere (e.g. to github).
