The script only moves open bugs; moving closed bugs for GTK would be
quite a move, and would not really preserve the history anyway,
because the bug numbers would be different, and because the
projects/products would not match.
If a bug does not receive any feedback in the allotted time, then
it'll stay on Bugzilla.

Yes, Bugzilla will remain available for existing bug for the
foreseeable future. Even in case we closed down Bugzilla for good, we
have plans to turn it into a static website, for archival purposes.
