question on the state of Bugzilla WebService API

Really good idea guys! I need this functionality too! As it seems, that I'm
too stupid to embed the mylyn-api in my program correctly, I have to rely on
the Bugzilla WebService API. And this functionality is really pretty poor :(

There are a few thing, that I'm missing in this buglist:
- get custom fields
- similar to products there should be a get_accessible_bugs method. It's
pretty long winded and slow at the moment to write a method, that retrieves
all bugs in the database

What do you think about that?

Best Regards,

It works, but it can't really do that much (can create a bug, list some kind

of information and so on, but lots of functionality still lack). We  (you
I :-) need to write some more patches to introduce more functionality.

Some of the issues are listed here:
