I'd like to do the reoganization in bugzilla.eazel.com before
the move.  That way we can simply create matching products
and components in bugzilla.gnome.org at that time.

I'll help on the b.e.c side if we can agree on producs/components/
versions.  Although I can't be sure, I think Greg Leblanc has the
powers to help on the bugzilla.gnome.org side and will offer
assistance when we're ready.

If, by not moving attachments, we can stick to standard bugzilla
XML I'd rather do that - it will make things easier for us.

I can help with this part.  I think contributing category
owners' addresses should be updated - mail for bugs filed
against their categories should go directly to them.
All other category owners' mail should be sent to a mailing
list such as nautilus-bugs gnome org
