The issue is that, as I understand it, Mozilla is downsizing on the
amount of VCS systems it has to maintain. So IT is trying to
decommission the internal git server and is not really interested in
putting another one in its place and maintain that instead (gitlab).
So if we move to github, we have a stable place to host the upstream
Bugzilla as well as BMO itself.
