As Ralph already pointed out - the reasons boiled down to limited 
resources, and what we really wanted out of the issue tracker. Bz at the 
time seemed very complex, neither Johnny nor I were very keen on 
spending lots of time with perl + we wanted an easy way to interface the 
issue tracker stuff with the website. Many years down the road, the 
integration has not happened! But the much simpler schema and mysql 
requirements behind mantis have come in handy when building reports and 
integrating other tools.

Also worth noting is that we actually migrated FROM bugzilla to mantis, 
the first instance that we setup on the split from caoslinux was bugzilla.
