There are few disadvantages of having overlay bugs on b.g.o:
1) bugs get lost in the noise, currently there are ~600
maintainer-wanted bugs, some of them may be interesting from our POV
2) people that are assigned to bugs are rarely people responsible for
given package, in most cases those bugs are just assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There several reasons to that, one e.g. contributor to sci overlay does
not have b.g.o account.
3) bugs can be changed/resolved only by devs or reporter, unless you
have edit privs
Having more open tracker, would relieve us from much work while allowing
contributors to take more control.
