We have long had the ability to import an archive (zip/tgz) from a given public URL, but what about throwing up a file from your local hard drive? The following bug is about adding this ability to the Dashboard UI: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=474919 This bug is about the functionality and having a command kick it off.
Changeset 39fa6ead7a96 has the fix which enables a smarter import command which now lets you say: "import projectname" and a popup comes up to let you add the archive. Still need to add dashboard UI to kick this off too.
This is a mass migration from Mozilla Labs :: Bespin to Bespin :: Dashboard.
