Just checking. In order to CC Bugzilla users to Phabricator tasks, those old users must exist as new users in Phabricator during the migration process. @Rush, does this factor fit in your idea of how Bugzilla users would be created/claimed in Phabricator?

I think yes, but voting in the New Phab World Order we are thinking is more akin to awarding a token (pleased/displeased) while cc'ing comes with notifications and it being in the mix for your dashboards and such. I don't know if we can automate token giving via api, but are we sure vote => cc is what we want?

We don't have any data which interpretations and motivations for voting on a bug report in Bugzilla are the most common ones (and I am not aware of any literature on this topic either).
Personally I lean towards not automatically turning votes into CC'ing people when migrating from Bugzilla to Phabricator - if people wanted to be CC'ed, they could have CC'ed themselves in addition to voting (and I think if you already managed to cope with Bugzilla's horrible Voting UI then CC'ing yourself should have been a smaller challenge).

I just realized that votng in Bugzilla doesn't add you to the CC list. Therefore I agree, voters in Bugzilla shouldn't be converted to CCed in Phabricator.

The problem is that https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=email by default has some checkboxes enabled for "When my relationship to this bug is Voter, I want to receive mail when ..."
I wonder if it's worth to run a SQL query to check which settings are common among people.

Yes (though I'm not sure that "Resolved" is better than "Wontfix").
No matter what, some people will be unhappy. In this case if I can choose between some people slightly interested in a ticket but not CCed on it vs. some people suddenly getting spammed with bugmail, I prefer to not spam.

And just for the records and to document it: We cannot export votes via Bugzilla's API. http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.4/en/html/api/Bugzilla/WebService/Bug.html says "Searching by votes was removed in Bugzilla 4.0.", reference: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=577049
