I 100% support this move. There are inevitably going to be some pain
points, but the end result will be worth it.

That said, here's a potential pain point: in Bugzilla, you can have
different components auto-assign to different accounts, and we made
these @gnome.bugs fake accounts for teams. The docs team uses this to
make it easy to follow docs bugs across products. I don't think

Another potential pain point: in Bugzilla, one can move bugs between
products. This happen when the bug has been reported to the wrong
product, or when triaging the bugs the developers know the bug is
somewhere else in the stack.

Gitlab does not allow moving bugs between products. It is expected to
be in 8.6 [1], but that is not for sure.
