This will depend on when we run the migration. If we start using it
for task tracking before we migrate from Bugzilla, then we might have
to increase the bug numbers by a specified amount like Wikimedia had
to. Either way, the bug numbering should be kept intact in some form
or another.

If the Phabricator test is successful and is selected by the community
then we'll probably migrate our Git infrastructure first, before
conducting another round of consultation for Bug tracking.
