No, our Bugzilla is adapted cause the normal bugzilla does not cover all 
of our needs. So we have to look first if JIRA cover's all our needs. 
It's not a good Idea to make a desidation about a tool without know, 
what's our feature request. (Oh, this tool looks great, let's take this one)

Bugzilla to Bugzilla sould be not a problem, if we can take over the 
adaptions for the OOo Bugzilla

Bugzilla to JIRA.

If we like to move to JIRA we should check the flowing first:

* Cover JIRA all our Features wich we have in Bugzilla?
* Has JIRA the same or better performance?
* How we migrate from Bugzilla to JIRA? Works the migrations tools fine 
etc. Remember, migrations tools can easely fail, if a tool is adapted. 
Therefor we have to test it first, and maybe we have to adapt it.
