Oh, nice, I didn't realize all of the bugs would be copied over.
Triaging will still help clean up the active items, but I don't think
it's a blocker.

Commenting on bugs seems to trigger the timeout less often than
trying to update some of the metadata. At least that's what I think
we've found with the release tools. It's also safe to ignore the
timeout errors in this case, I think.

On the other hand, I think just closing down the tracker is probably
sufficient. It's not like we have lots of people commenting on pbr bugs
right now.
