Just to stick to the guidelines I made in the original post, could you 
please enlighten me as to the extent of work involved in maintaining 
Fedora's portion of Bugzilla?  For example, how many people, machines, 
TBs, & experts *maintain* Fedora's portion of Bugzilla?  These are 
legitimate questions, especially since you've posted them as a "blocker" 
to my proposal.

With that out of the way, I really would like to know how hard it is to 
maintain an issue tracker for a FOSS project as large as Fedora.  My 
initial idea is, "Not really", aside from the scale.  If that's far off, 
I' really appreciate knowing the daily challenges faced in keeping 
Bugzilla up-and-running.

Are you on the Bugzilla team?  If not, could you cajole someone from the 
team to respond?  I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks!
