Bot for updating Bugzilla statuses

Erik Moeller-4
I've created a template that's intended for use on feedback pages
where users report lots of bugs and issues:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Template:Tracked

This could be useful in helping non-technical users quickly understand
the status of issues that are being reported on-wiki.

However, it would be even more useful if the bug status could be
automatically regularly updated according to what's in Bugzilla.

Is there a bot already that can update bugzilla status information in
wiki pages? If not, is anyone in the list up for taking a crack at it?

Thanks :)
Erik

An alternative on this is to use a gadget or site JS bit to fetch the
status live via Bugzilla's JSON-RPC interface -- that's easiest if all the
pages are centralized in one wiki of course, so may not be ideal for pages
on the other wikis.

Or just create an extension which shows the status of a given bug
(connecting to kaulen with read-only credentials).
No dummy bot edits and no need of extra connections. And fits well in
our know-how.
Although perhaps those edits are a *feature*? (so that the change shows
in the watchlist).
In that case, better start reseaching bugzilla hooks and how to call
from the hook the mediawiki perl framework.

It's a litte pitty but currently there is no english doc available for
my 'subster' bot and it is not registred on mediawiki wiki (yet) but on
de:wiki. It does sync or substitiution of e.g. url sources into wiki
pages. So if you really consider doing this - then let me know and we
can setup the bot on mediawiki!

I like that approach best. We can just run a single consolidated API
query the moment a page with [[Template:Tracked]] instances on it is
loaded, and add most recent status updates to all the relevant bugs.

A bot would have the advantage of pushing the status to watchlists and
such, but would have the disadvantage of never being fully up-to-date.

Let me put it in the gadget to-do list and, if there are no takers,
I'll take a crack at it. :)
