For me, this all depends on whether the functionality will be reduced or
somehow buggy or not present at all.

I think at least the following features are essential to work:
- patch review status
- simple-dup-finder
- stock answers
- describeuser.cgi
- Boogle (if with this you mean search by keyword).

Couldn't you (or anyone else will be working on this) work on a database
dump until the basic features are implemented and then merge back the
changes? If you need testing on a separate installation as things get
implemented, I (and I guess others from the bugsquad) can help with
Otherwise, I am not sure it would be acceptable (for me at least) to
stay without all those functionalities for 6+ months.
