Hehe, I thought Olav's email was one of the funniest I've read in a
while.  I busted up laughing.  :)  Olav has been kicking butt putting
*tons* of his time (as a volunteer) into getting Evolution bugs and
several related products from to (as well as fixing several other longstanding
bugzilla bugs).  To maintain their sanity, it was easiest just to add
200000 to all ximian bug numbers so that any of their existing
documents, ChangeLogs, TODOs, etc. could easily be used to still find
the appropriate bugs.  So, we just reserved all the 200000-299999
range for Ximian bugs.  As a side-effect, this means that new bugs
after the import will start at 300000.  The announcement was about the
downtime needed for this Ximian bug import, written in a rather
hilarious way.
