Well, that is the reason to have our own bug tracker, but that is not
the reason to have two different technical platforms for that.

As said: Mantis is a much more harmless beast to handle, at least at the
time I last looked at bugzilla (somewhere in the middle of the bugzilla
2 cycle).

If that has changed and if the opinion of most people here is that it
would be better to switch to bugzilla: Sure, if somebody (or more than
one person) wants to help with it.

We could phase out mantis, but beware: We don't just need a place to
file CentOS 6 bugs against, we'd also need to track CentOS 4 and 5 bugs
in there. And we'd need a few people to look at all still open bugs in
b.c.o and decide if those should be taken over to a new bug reporting
facility or not.

And I am not sure if we  - at the moment - have the time to do that
before 6 comes out.

Helpful hands are always welcome.
