All completed now. If you run into any problems, please file a new bug
under the Bugzilla product.

I'm sending this email as idl0r went to be after 8+ hours straight of
working on the new Bugzilla setup.

We apologize for this taking so extremely long.

Things didn't go so well at the database layer [1], and that hugely
increased the migration time. 

The Gentoo for the Bugzilla service went perfectly, a huge thanks to
idl0r for the years of work he has put into them.

The forcing is temporarily disabled now until we fix a possible related
performance issue, per bug 357711.

[1] We discovered a potential MySQL bug with replication, where the
slaves end up truncating mediumtext columns to 1024 characters when done
with REPLACE INTO and GROUP_CONCAT. Will pursue with upstream this week.
This was only noted with mk-table-checksum, and we decided to just redo
replication from the master that was used for introducing the schema
changes. This added 3.5 hours onto the end of the migration :-(.
