Description

12 years ago
It is quite helpful to us as a development team to be able to get instant notifications on bug changes, and jabber does that better than email.
I have a patch to an old version of Bugzilla that did this, which I'd like to update, but it seems to make sense to do this in a customizable way as there is no hook for it.

Basically instead of sending all the contents that go into the email we just send the subject as a jabber message. This also requires a way of looking up the user's jabber address from their account (in our case their email and jabber addresses are the same which makes life easier).

Is there a way to create a hook for this kind of action?

Patch to Bugzilla/ directory to enable jabber hook - on bugzilla 2.18 CVS

Attached the simple patch in Bugzilla 2.18 that enabled this functionality by calling a Python script (will attach too, but once you have the ability to run a process at the right point this is fairly easy...)

jabbot module used by the bugjab script

for completeness including the simple module I use to send off the message - this uses a Python xmpp library to do it (search the web if you want to try use it...)
Cool plan that. Next up: SMS!  :)

Some jabber gates can send SMS, so it is possible :)
