How to integrate Bugzilla with QC

There are two ways you could go about it. 

1) Use the  OTA API (from HP) to write a script that syncs with Bugzilla
(it could be called via a hook on bug change in Bugzilla)

2) Use the QC Synchronization server to accomplish this. 

#2 is a better technical option, but because of license restrictions, it
couldn't be released as open source (you need to have a QC license for
the Sync server SDK.)
That said, I'd like to tackle this problem. I've recently done some
integration work with Quality Center and JUnit tests, and I'd like to do
something similar for Bugzilla.  Let me know off list and we can discuss
it.  From another similar post, I suspect it would be considered off topic.

It's not really a Bugzilla development issue since it concerns an
external feature.  It might be nice to have a plugin architecture for
Bugzilla for things like this though.
