Hi all,

This migration has now been completed this evening, and Bugzilla should be
up and running now in its new home.

As part of this I did have to apply a patch to correct Bugzilla's use of
Perl's email libraries, so please report any issues you see in case other
parts of the codebase have also bitrotted and broken.
At some point in the not too distant future we may need to evaluate a
replacement platform to Bugzilla if upstream does not release a newer
