Subject Re: Common API for issue tracking systems
Date Mon, 03 Jul 2006 18:04:55 GMT

One person who should definitely be pulled into the discussion is Mik  
Kersten. He's the fellow who works on Mylar and has integration for  
Bugzilla and JIRA and I think Mantis. He's got some code that would  
definitely be of use.

Mik, are you interested creating a general library for issue  
management here?

Sorry for just pulling you in here but I figure it's just easier to  
get you involved as the topic has come up :-)
