As has already been mentioned - SF has its own issue tracking system.

Why is that?  What is causing the the high disk space usage?
Attachments?  Issues (unlikely)?  Code?  Something else?

Bugzilla provides the ability to use an alias for a bug, so it wouldn't
be a problem to create "FCRT<issueid>" as an alias for those that want
to use the "old" issue numbers.  That makes it easy to move to from
system and not worry about renumbering.  JIRA uses numbering per-project
so the same is true there.

Jason, I agree.  The good thing about Bugzilla is that it does have the
ability to import XML.  The question is, how to deal with the bug's
history.  So - before migrating to any system, I think it's fair to ask
- what are the requirements for data coming from the old system?  How
much of it must be carried over versus what parts can be left behind?  I
would have to assume that the RT system would be available for at least
a short period after a migration was completed at least so that old data
could still be looked up.

Typically, the way I've done migrations like these is to write an import
script that imports data from an existing system into the new system,
first from a backed-up copy for development and testing purposes, then
on migration day, from the live system.
