Not much to tell. Red Hat put XML-RPRC aupport into...the 2.17version
of Bugzilla, I think we discovered. There's a prototype XML-RPC
client called bugzuki. zach and justdave and kiko and I have more or
less agreed on a plan for supporting remote-scripted bug submissions
that involves folding the Red Hat mods into the Bugzilla mainline.
My goal in all this is to be able to remote-script package submissions
to Fedora. But it quickly became clear that the problem needed to be
pushed upstream to you guys, so I'm here helping and nudging.
