As you may or may not know, the Mono team is in the process of switching
from the Ximian Bugzilla to the Novell Bugzilla. The Ximian Bugzilla
installation is a very old, patched, modified, buggy and unmaintained
version of Bugzilla. The Novell Bugzilla team has offered to take over
the maintenance of Bugzilla and give us both a modern Bugzilla
installation and access to various tools that will help our process. 

As part of this process we need everyone to create Novell.Com accounts. 

When creating your Novell.Com account, please make sure to use the same
e-mail address that you use to login to the Ximian Bugzilla. This will
ensure that your Bugzilla configuration stays the same. 

Please create your Novell.Com account now, so that you will be able to
immediately access the Novell Bugzilla when we do the final switchover. 

To create a Novell.Com account, please go to this URL and fill out the
form: https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createSimpleAccount.jsp 

Important: To link your existing bugs from bugzilla.ximian.com to the
new bugzilla make sure that you use the same email address in that

We appreciate all of the contributions that you have made to mono in the
Ximian Bugzilla and hope that you will continue to contribute in the
Novell Bugzilla.
