Bug numbers exist in code comments, list archives, etc., etc.  If someone reads 'clang bug #1234' somewhere it will be ambiguous, which would be a real shame.

It'd be nice if Github allows to bump the issue counter to 44000+ .
(current largest https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id= id is 44000+)

Then the website can set up a redirector:

http://llvm.org/PR1 => https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1
http://llvm.org/PR44000 => https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44000
http://llvm.org/PR45000 => https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/issue/45000
http://llvm.org/PR50000 => https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/issue/50000
