Are you suggesting that we do within the boundaries of the Mozilla 
project's participation in the SoC, or do you think the Bugzilla project 
should apply for itself?

The latter, if accepted by Google, would give us more leeway in how we 
handled contributors, and give us a fixed number of slots. If you 
piggy-backed on the Mozilla relationship, it may end up that a bunch of 
Firefox and Thunderbird projects ended up getting judged as more 
important, and you get no funding at all.

Last year, the Mozilla Foundation did independently fund one idea which 
didn't make the cut. But I wouldn't rely on that and anyway, that rather 
makes it pointless to have gone via Google anyway.
