For FSF sites, including bugzilla.gcc.org, links to Launchpad aren't allowed as long as it is non-free software. So please delay implementing that feature until Launchpad is free.
I'm sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear in my original post. For this functionality to work with a Bugzilla or Trac instance, that maintainers of that instance need to install the requisite Launchapd API plugin. Without the plugin, the API isn't available. Since we can assume that bugzilla.gcc.org won't install the plugin (at least until Launchpad is released as free software), this isn't a problem.
Alternatively, just make Launchpad free software and all these problems go away.
We're working on it ;)
