Hey Alexej,

I recommend using the Bugzilla WebService for this.

The main source file is in Bugzilla/ WebService.pm :

which in turn calls other secondary files for different purposes.

Here's a list of opened bugs against the Bugzilla:WebService component
(we use bugzilla.mozilla.org to track our bugs):


The feature that you're requesting is reported here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412074 (quite interesting comments)

but it's not fixed. By looking at the existing WebService code you

if interested.

See http://www.bugzilla.org/developers/ on how to submit a patch (the
first two links on that page are probably what you're looking for).
See also the "Mailing List" section, which allows you to subscribe to
developers at bugzilla.org (CCed), this is where dev people could provide
further feedback on your idea (or you can try our IRC channel for
immediate help).
