How does this differ from Core :: Tracking?
(besides being a product instead of a component)

from the name i'd expect core::tracking to be limited to core, or at best, core/firefox/toolkit meta bugs.  kilimanjaro needs to track issues across more products than that.

While Core does live inside of most of our client software products, so there's some (though not great) justification for using it to track bugs across client software components or products, it's just completely the wrong place to track cross-product cross service issues or programs. Something like Kilimanjaro lives above all of the other products (or at least beside them) and certainly not inside one of them.
