If you're willing to help with reorganization later (after the
move) I'd be happy to move them now.  I agree that getting the
bugs moved is more important than fine-tuning the organization.
So, should we create b.g.o products/categories/versions that match
the current Eazel bugzilla?

Thanks for the clarification.  So, do we want to transfer the
attachments or not?

If contributors wish to own specific categories and receive
mail for them that should be possible.  The mailing list should
own all other components.  I assume we need to create a
nautilus-bugs-list gnome org?
