Back in September of last year, I posted asking for input on a RESTful 
HTTP API for Bugzilla. This project is now feature-complete, deployed 
and ready for production use:

It is already suitable for:

- Mashups and tool integration[0]

- Jetpacks/Greasemonkey scripts to enhance the current Bugzilla UI[1]

- Guided bug-filing wizards[2]

- Personal dashboards[3]

- Task-specific bug filing or updating UIs[4]

- Bugzilla integration addons for Firefox and Thunderbird[5]

- Extracting data for doing statistical analysis[6]

(The project is not yet marked as version 1.0 because the API design has 
not been officially agreed by the Bugzilla project. But I hope there 
will be little or no further change.)

I am extremely interested in seeing people use this to solve their 
problems, and hearing how it could be further improved to address new 
use cases. If there are Bugzilla-related problems you want to solve and 
think BzAPI could help, please let me know.
