Well, since I'm going on vacation as of *now*, it's not going to
happen until August...

Re. the last point, it does require that package maintainers play
along. They have not been very good at closing issues in the Add-on
section of the current bug repo, which is why we currently recommend
users to approach the maintainer directly.

As a general matter, nobody is going to do bug repository maintenance
as a full-time job, so we need to go with a turnkey solution like
Bugzilla. We're likely going to lose the mailing list integration as
we know it -- we can probably send a copy of all bug reports to
r-devel, but there's not going to be a nice way to save the followups
automagically. Users will also likely be requested to obtain a
password and login before submitting a bug.
