Description

RFE: BugZilla should allow "grabbing" single items of bug data
(status/os/summary/reporter/platform/description/etc.) from bug/query pages to
"include" them into other pages.

Example:
http://www.mozilla.org/unix/xlib.html contains a list of bugs in it's "Project
Status" section. The idea would be to convert the page into a JSP and include
the bug status directly from BugZilla.

JSP source would look like:
-- snip --
<jsp:include
page="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/includebugdata.cgi?buglist=30751&lformat=${status}"
/>
-- snip --

If there was an extra parameter in the URL which could be used to turn off the
BZ header and footer, and the current bug to specify columns in the buglist.cgi
URL is sorted, then you could do this sort of thing with an IFRAME containing a
buglist.

(I'm hoping to look at both these points sometime soonish]

Which browsers support IFrame ? This solution would only be an option if all of
{netscape4.x,lynx,opera} does support this ...

I'm not sure about IFRAME support, but you can always specify the link for
browsers which don't support them.

Anyway, bug#104025 is related to this, or at least the IFRAME side of things I
mentioned.

We have an XML bug format, and we're developing our XML-RPC interface further. For people who want this, they can just use those.
