It would be wise for admins to do the "Install git, move from bzr to
git" part before they needed to get a security fix...

I guess this is one for justdave:

"Is it reasonable to require Bugzilla administrators to switch SCM
system on an occasion other than a release upgrade?"

If the answer is yes, we can shut down bzr fairly soon. If the answer is
no, we need to maintain it until all current branches are EOLed.
