To be checked in the script, but you have to make sure your bugzilla
email is listed in gitlab (it supports multiple email). After migration
there will be no issue removing old emails. You can also change your
email in bugzilla too if you want, that works these days.

Indeed, I'm not planning to support an outside mapping of emails other than what is in GitLab — good catch that GitLab accounts can have more than one email address. I'll need to check that the script will behave properly in that case.

Bastien, do you also mean to imply that the wish to be subscribed to >2000 issues means that receiving >2000 mails won't be a problem?
