Unless we could get a Single Sign On system going with the Wiki I don't 
think it would actually end up being too productive, in fact more 
counterproductive.

What I think it would cause is us using the time and energy to move the 
system, then recreate our accounts and configure it properly.  At that 
point anyone else would need to recreate their accounts to submit new 
tickets or updates.  All just for a temporary system to have in-house 
until we figure out a better solution.  I think the people that care to 
will make an account, otherwise they tend to find somewhere to let us 
know about bugs (typically the chatroom) and we just deal with it for 
them.  So, without SSO as a bonus, I don't see too much reason to host 
bugzilla ourselves at the moment as a temporary solution; it seems to me 
like moving domains just to do it with no added benefit of doing so.

I will install a test setup locally of the latest bugzilla tomorrow and 
test it out to see what new features are in the most modern build. I 
will see if any of them are really tempting to include which would make 
the move worth the effort as a temporary solution.
