the main reason I wish to convert is because bugzilla is little used and
little maintained in ASF at this point from what i can tell; most projects
are using JIRA and few continue to use BZ; i just noticed that BCEL has
recently requested @Infra to perform the conversion to JIRA [1] (though
there appear to be a few bumps in that path)

[1] https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4298

given Clay's efforts to modernizer our site doc infrastructure, it seems
appropriate to look at other tool upgrades as well;

as for cost, the main work will be on @Infra to perform the conversion, and
for us as users to make the mental change; i haven't personally used JIRA
much, but it seems a more modern, feature-full interface as well as having
better svn integration features;
