To my best ... ehm, memorization (I was part of the team at Oracle doing
the migration from the IssueZilla (ran on collab-net's CEE) to BugZilla
(ran in a Kenai context):

- we extended the database scheme with a field taking the issue type.

- we changed some settings of the BZ instance, e.g. the allowed status

- we did quite some customizations to the form templates, for the OOo
  theming, but also for some workflow issues. That's the area I know
  least about (Bernd Eilers did the great job here)

For the first two items: All of this is possible via BZ's admin
front-end, though we in fact let our migration scripts do it for us.
