There is already an “FC” project on issues.redhat.com, into which Fedora
bugs can be mirrored from bugzilla.redhat.com.  Should we expose the
mirror+ Bugzilla flag publicly, and make the FC project public, so that
people can experiment with that?

What is going to happen to the CentOS Mantis instance
<https://bugs.centos.org/>?  From the looks of it, it probably should
just be switched off?
