we are missing a tool that would clone the Fedora bugs from bugzilla to
upstream bug trackers. I think the removal of the manual work needed to
copy all the information from bugzilla to upstream tracker would be
appreciated by the packagers. I have the idea for the tool for quite
some time, but didn't find the time to realize it :-(
