As one of the people on the infrasructure team i'm telling you we do not have 
the resources or knowledge for this.

It has taken us a long time to think about migrating mailing lists.  Which we 
are slowly doing.

We would need to import every fedora bug from Red Hats bugzilla.  it would be 
smaller but not that much smaller.  If we dont do this we would create alot fo 

I suggest that you take this to the infrastructure list. fedora-devel is 
really the wrong place for this discussion.
