Let's see... that took about 9 minutes. The stats for the last 7
months will look a little off, of course, as this is a dump from April

Hmm, I guess I might have to go spelunking in the database dump to see
if they're store in there somewhere. Could you please give me detailed
information (a separate email is fine) about the specific searches
(params, url strings, etc..)? Please make sure to only include
searches that were present in April.

So far, I've just been modifying the original files directly. That
seems like the easiest mechanism, and will hopefully make it clearer
when we rebase on top of a new version of Bugzilla:
(e.g. https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/gitweb?p=bugzilla.git;a=commit;h=fe9a516841208ce66ebcd9818d12c7f31ff80646)

Indeed, indeed. That's why I think that modifying the original files
will make it clearest what needs to change whenever we upgrade and
rebase our patches.

Sorry, couldn't test my urls when gerrit was down :P Try here:

For each version of Bugzilla we deploy (e.g. Bugzilla 4.4.6), we
create a tdf- branch in the repo (e.g. tdf-4.4.6). We rebase (actually
more like cherry-pick, as we don't want to destroy the old branch) all
of our local changes on top of the new branch, and deploy based on
that tip. I made some notes here:

I'm not wedded to nginx, but some of the preliminary work for the
migration was tested against nginx, so I continued using it. In my
testing of Bugzilla, I tried both nginx and Apache, and both worked
quite well for me. I believe that a fair portion of TDF infra
currently runs on nginx, so unless you've seen some significant
performance differences, I'm inclined to use nginx for now.
