Sorry for the delay. I have just synced 
with what is live on BMO. I also added a 4.2 directory with our latest 
code that is updated
to work with 4.2 (some minor changes).

Yes. The original version used ajax calls to get data from Bugzilla but this
loads the data directly using Bugzilla core code so should be slightly 
It did not require any changes to the core Bugzilla code for 4.0 or 4.2.

Most of the attachment.status is just commented out in the JS code. It 
may or
may not have been completely ported to YUI which I would need to check. BMO
does not use attachment statuses and that is a gnome.org customization.
Once someone uncommented the relevant JS code and converted it if necessary
it should work with the Bugzilla instance if it uses attachment 
statuses. Unfortunately
I do not have the spare cycles to maintain the custom version of our port.
