Scmbug looks at the problem from the other direction: it offers
intergation of any version control system with any bug-tracking system.
The difference is that if some criteria are not met, a version control
commit operation is rejected and no information is published in the
In my understanding, the VCS extension displays anything published in
the version control system without means of controlling what is accepted
in the version control system.

I am happy to see that it is possible to view in Bugzilla version
control information. I would like to understand how this capability can
be programmed, and add, if possible, support in Scmbug to publish such
VCS information in Bugzilla.
In the past, I requested supported in Bugzilla for providing means of
general autolinkification, and perhaps the time was right back then.
Is the VCS capability driven by some data inserted in the database ?
Would it be possible then for an external tool, like Scmbug, to be
creating such data, synchronously, so that VCS autolinkification can
appear in Bugzilla ?
