We plan on submitting all our changes upstream once they have been
debugged (and assuming they have any general applicability).

When we do the migration, we might try to automatically add links for
all old bugs, but we haven't talked about it yet.

All the data on insects.digium.com will go away when we go live and
re-migrate the data from the live bug tracker. Everything on the
insects.digium.com is *testing* data only.

All contributors on the new system will have to sign/accept the new
license agreement, even if they have an existing one in place. There
won't be any need for a status page, as once the changes are complete
you will receive an email confirming that your license agreement has
been reviewed, accepted and activated. You can still upload code
submissions while it is in 'pending' status, but those submissions won't
be visible to any users until your agreement is activated by our legal

Also note that the license agreement text currently on the site is not
the final version; we have one more round of minor changes to make for
the electronic version before it will become official.
