FWIW, "20 hours" or "11 hours" or "three days" is like nothing, compared to
what the migration has already been doing. If it only requires taking
Bugzilla down for 24 hours to do it, IMO you should just do it already —
whatever "it" is.

Also, re timestamps: The choices seem to be
- Wait for GitHub to offer us some way of importing timestamps, *then* do
the migration; or
- Do the migration, *then* wait for GitHub to offer us some way of
retroactively changing some of the timestamps.
Neither is perfect, but the latter is clearly better for LLVM's purposes.
