Hmm, but it says here that we should use the same address in Bugzilla and FAS:

That solution seems backwards anyway. I think most new contributors probably 
report bugs long before they become packagers, so they need Bugzilla accounts 
before they need FAS accounts.

How about changing Bodhi to allow login with either a FAS account or a 
Bugzilla account? Would that be difficult to do?
