Update on moving Bugzilla to git

Just wanted to give a brief update on the plan to transition to git to
assure all that it is still progressing.

I've fleshed out the wiki page[1], including a step-by-step plan.  I've
got a one-time migration script working based on [2] that preserves the
bug ID commit metadata, although I need to tweak it slightly to only
annotate commits that don't reference the bug mentioned in the metadata
(the original script does this, but I need to change it to Bugzilla's
standard).  An example of the resulting migration for bmo/4.2 is at [3].

Finally, I have a git-to-bzr.pl script working based on the previous
migration script, bzr-to-cvs.pl[4].  I will be posting it for review
very soon.
