Hi Jon,

What problem are you trying to solve by removing them?
If they aren't creating a maintenance nightmare for plone.org  
maintainers and product owners can have the option of specifying an  
external bug-tracker (which I believe they do) then isn't more trouble  
removing them than keeping them?
