I'd really hate having BH tickets etc. in the default product. They
should be in the BH/bloodhound product. To maintain URL compatibility,
we can design rewrite rules for the Apache config that make all
product-scoped tickets, pages, etc. visible at their old locations.

The reason why it makes sense to scope all BH stuff into its own product
is that it will then be easier for other projects to adopt BH as their
issue tracker. Most ASF projects currently use Jira, but some use
Bugzilla and at least one uses the tracker at If we make
transition to Bloodhound moderately easy, they may switch (and we may
convince Infra to provide a more powerful VM for the BH host).
