Is this something that will come with 3.0?  I don't even remember wanting this
in particular (I've never used XMLRPC).  I'm sure it was what dkl told me to
file after discussing ideas about automatic bug escalation between RH and
sourceware bugzilla.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2007-11-20 17:32:45 EST
Sorry for the long delay in responding this report :( Yes, this functionality
should come with the 3.0 upgrade since the backend code will be improved enough
to allow changing of all bug attributes through a single XMLRPC call. Currently
we have hacked ours to have different methods to change individual attributes
and unfortunately external bug references is not one of them currently. Let me know
if you need this sooner than the 3.0 timeframe and maybe we can add the support in.

Comment 3 Roland McGrath 2007-11-20 17:48:07 EST
I don't need an XMLRPC feature myself ever, certainly not by any particular
deadline.  My interest is in having you implement cool features for cooperation
between this bugzilla and upstream bugzillas, whenever and however that can happen.
Comment 4 David Lawrence 2008-09-16 12:53:02 EDT
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Comment 5 David Lawrence 2010-01-15 12:32:41 EST
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Comment 6 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 17:43:00 EDT
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.
