One of the most hairy task in hacking bugzilla is to retrieve bugs related data from bugzilla ( to manipulate it, to syncronize with other in some strange way, to do sanity check and to automate some process ...). I don't want to discuss how to retrieve bugs related information in this one, instead I would like to find out if its possible to have a standard format of output --- XML form of bugs. This XML output will contains all information of a bug, including activity, attachments, longdescs etc.. Which means its a data dump from mysql in a nice formated way. With this XML output, hacker can easily build XML object in their language, manipulate with a official recognized format. I think this can help to formalized the project structure in the future, plus provide API based on the XML object. Since this can be a data dump, it can/should also output other tables data in a meaningful way, i.e. with association to a bug's attribute. Reproducible: Always
Have you seen https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?ctype=xml&id=278832 - while its not the full data, it does go someway to providing the information you want?
Yes, I've seen the ctype option. I learned it from the xml.cgi and that's what my idea originated from. Colin, What do you think about my idea? Will it be useful?
Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist. This doesn't mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it. If you are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.
It seems to me this is very much related to bug 112646, bug 233984 and bug 285614... Is it a duplicate? Or will they maybe together fix this bug?
Just wondering whether anything's happening with this one, or whether I'm looking in the wrong place?
look also at bug 302669
This bug has been morphed into a request for an XML format for bug activity. Bug activity is available programmatically via the WebServices API: http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/3.4/en/html/api/Bugzilla/WebService/Bug.html (see the Bug.history call). Is that sufficient? Gerv
(In reply to comment #7) > Bug activity is available programmatically via the WebServices API: > Is that sufficient? I think it is. And if you want it included in the bug XML file, then that's bug 112646, which I'm duping this bug to.
