Feature Request for an generic robot interface, so other applications (ie. Version controls, build-/test-systems, mail-robots, etc) can be easily docked-in.


Reproducible: Always

huh? we already have hooks, we already have perl modules, we already have alternate output formats e.g. rss/xml/rdf/js. and we're working on some sort of rpc, although you can already just make url requests...

Is there any documentation for this ?

I don't want to hack into the (web-)frontend with my robots, instead I need an clean interface, which reliably does never change once its specified (later changes could be done by adding another, similar but changed, interface) so I don't have ugly surprises.

Maybe these interfaces could be represented each by some .cgi in an robot/ subdir.


At the moment I need an interface for filing an new bug, so I can automatically add new review requests for my source crawler project (http://sourcefarm.metux.de/).

There's a Python script in contrib/ that does that:

hmm, this script uses the current web frontend. Of course it works for now, but this isn't what I actually consider an stable robot interface. 

a) no one guarantees, that the URLs and parameters do not change
b) there's no guaranteed syntax for the output
