Today I set up a local mysql database, imported sourceware's bugzilla
contents, and tested an import of the gdb gnats database.  After some
hacking, this worked.  I also set up a local bugzilla and tested

So, I think I am ready to do the actual switch.

If you have any last requests, now would be a good time to mention
