Upgrading bugzilla is an excellent idea. Unfortunately, I've never
adminned a bugzilla system before, and thus am not entirely sure what
I would need to do. Does it just involve replacing the current
contents of the bugzilla directory (which is just a bunch of perl
scripts) with the newest version from Mozilla CVS? Do I have to
change the MySQL setup (eeek)?

Anyone dealt with this before?

And thanks jesper for the stats.
