Further to Aaron's point, do we have a recommended conventions (e.g.,
llvm/llvm-project#1 or something less verbose) for referring to issues on
GitHub (from code, from commit messages, from other bug reports, etc.) in a
manner that is unambiguous with the convention used to refer to Bugzilla
bugs? Have we documented said conventions in the appropriate places? In
particular, we should discourage use of conventions where Bugzilla bugs
result in links to non-corresponding GitHub issues.
