So, the advantages would be: 

- Could run the review tool on the package whenever it updated. 
- git history could be kept. 
- Could possibly require some level of completness before filing the

Disadvantages would be: 

- Another service/code we need to maintain. 
- Possibly having to deal with junk uploads unless we filter things

Any others?

server/setup as real packages, just to be sure there would be no
leakage from these into real packages somehow. 

But some kind of similar instance could be setup I suppose.

It makes me wonder if we couldn't just ditch bugzilla entirely if we
move to this? have comments and such in the app...
