Description Dennis Gregorovic 2009-11-10 21:16:03 EST
It would be useful to have an XML-RPC method that takes in a bug ID and returns a hash with two entries: 'dependson' and 'blocked'.  These would each be a list (possibly empty) of bug IDs that the bug depends on and blocks.  This list would encompass the "full" tree, not just the immediate list of bugs.
Comment 3 Simon Green 2012-06-19 21:23:31 EDT
We should do this for both the RPC and web interface. It will be done as a virtual fields (dependson_deep and blockson_deep for example). Change would be done in Bugzilla::Bugs so we can get the values for both places.
