Me too, I like bugzilla (but not for doing code reviews).

What would be the pain points if GitLab is used only for git and code
reviews, and we keep bugzilla for the bug tracker? Have you considered
that option?

We would loose automatic links between bug tracker tickets and pull
requests. When a pull request is merged, we would need to close manually
the bugzilla ticket if everything is done. And when someone requests a
pull, the person would need to add a comment manually on bugzilla so
that other people know that the bug is being worked on.

Mmh I think that's not practical if the links must be done manually.

Maintaining the bugzilla instance would also require sysadmin time, and
development efforts to rebase the patches to new bugzilla versions.

I don't know, I'm excited about the idea to use a similar contribution
workflow as in GitHub, but less excited about having a bug tracker
similar to the GitHub one. (I've never used GitLab, but I'm familiar
with GitHub, and after seeing some screenshots it seems that the GitLab
bug tracker is similar to GitHub's).
