Let me introduce myself. My name is Roger Lipp. I'm in sunny San Jose, California working for Hewlett-Packard.
I'm interested in helping out with the WebServices API for bugzilla. I've been working in Perl for longer than I'd really care to admit. I also do webservices with RoR and django.
I have been struggling to get a command-line tool to interface to bugzilla webservices through a corporate firewall. I love the "bugzilla" cli tool that is part of the bugzilla package (I believe this was provided in order to demonstrate the webservices interface). But I was not able to get it to work through our firewall. After searching through Google for a while, I decided to write a simple tool that was based on a firewall-friendly xmlrpc library. For this I chose to use "ruby". I kept the script simple enough to easily expose the method of using WebServices, while functional enough to be useful.
I would love to contribute my work to bugzilla, perhaps as a "ruby example of using the webservices api", or as a command-line interface that works behind a corporate firewall.
Is this of interest?
