Hey aaron,

Great to have you with us.

If you drop by in IRC (
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Communicate#IRC ) probably LpSolit
and mkanat will be more than happy to help you with your questions.
wurblzap AT gmail.com can also help with guidelines/pointers regarding
webservice development.

What we need in this area is pretty straightforward -- we aim to group
functionality in Perl Modules located under the Bugzilla/ directory.
That usually means extracting legacy code from existing .cgi files and
moving them in the object-oriented modules that I've mentioned.

Once there, the code can be exported as a WebService in a trivial way
-- just look how it's done right now for the webservice functionality
that we have:


Basically you can help either with moving code from .cgi files and
into .pm Perl modules (object-oriented), or you can help export
existing .pm Perl module code in a WebService component.

It's essentially to get to know the code and then you're half way
there, so take a look at .pm files and the WebService thing that I've
pointed and you'll probably know what to do next :)
