Organizing Projects

We have a current live project that has maintenance issues (bug fixes small enhancements) and we are going to rewrite that project with newer technologies from scratch.  Should this be a new project in Jira?  What is a good way to organize or differentiate projects?

I'd say it sounds like a good case for a new project.  But it very much depends on how you want to run your teams and project work.

I would be tempted to leave the current project open for maintenance fixes, and have a new project for the rewrite, as it's probably a separate bigger peice of work. 

I doubt the people doing the maintenance really care about the replacement when they're trying to support the old system, and I doubt the developers really want the support noise which applies only to something they're replacing.
