OK, either you are trolling or you are serious and you have some 
brainpower to stand behind your words.

If the former, then read 
http://slashdot.org/features/98/10/13/1423253.shtml very 
carefully and then go and do something useful.

If the latter, then I have a couple of bugs for you to solve:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=452962 -- that should 
be easy, just make periodic XML-RPC requests and store it in the 
database.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=189813 -- OK, this is 
biggie, and you will need to work closely with people around  
http://www.bugzilla.org . On the other hand, I heard they work on 
this, so any real help you can provide to them would be very 
welcome.

And fixing either of these would actually help somebody (me 
included; yes, I would love to click on the button "Move 
upstream" in RH Bugzilla) to fix bugs better. Your suggestion 
(aside from making a lot of work for somebody else, not talking 
about huge costs in hardware and bandwidth -- and yes, they are 
huge, just believe me) doesn't seem to help to anybody.
