So we have some Fedora people and we have some CentOS people, but we don't
have any of the people from Red Hat bugzilla team here to answer if this is
possible. One thing that I have gotten from talking with them in the past
is how much load Fedora puts on the bugzilla already (with about 1/2 -> 2/3
of the traffic and bugs) There have been discussions on whether it would be
better to have a seperate bugzilla for Fedora because many of the slow
times/outages in bugzilla are because Fedora is branching or some widely
used application is causing abrt reports like a rocket. I do not know if
they would want to add yet another operating system to that mix. [And no it
isn't a simple replication of the RHEL items in the database.. it requires
a couple of sacrifices of black roosters and a quart of unicorns spit. ]
