Bugzilla extension development help needed in supporting OSLC specifications Steve Speicher 6/22/11 6:51 AM
Spending too much time with your family? Not enough to do during the
weekends?

I was looking for some help in converting our initial implementation of OSLC
[1] support in Bugzilla [2] into a proper Bugzilla extension [3].  By doing
this, it would help Bugzilla to easily link to other repositories (or even
other instances of itself) by adopting the OSLC change management
specification [4].  Unfortunately we don't have that much experience with
Bugzilla and its extension development.  The approach we took in our OSLC
adapter for Bugzilla [2] was to put a front-end to Bugzilla using
Servlets/JSPs, j2bugzilla and XML-RPC.  The reason for this approach was: a)
we know these technologies better and b) it was the basis for a common
pattern we see when initially adopting OSLC and used it for some training
materials.

Feel free to either contact me or we can discuss in [3]

I'm in the middle of writing a generic extension to allow Bugzilla to
sync with other systems. I am happy to publish the work-in-progress and
then you can see whether its architecture would make a good basis for
this extension. Does that sound like it might be of interest?

That would be interesting to me too.

OK. I'll get it put up on bzr.mozilla.org in the next day or two.

I've pushed a drop of this code to:
http://bzr.mozilla.org/bugzilla/extensions/sync/trunk

It currently doesn't have much documentation, and it would be much
easier to understand if I could release a Sync plugin to go with it :-),
but I can't release the ones I've written of those. So more to come soon.
