Has anyone poked at scoping out the work required for either
the bot or
the enhancements we would need for pagure?
Lukáš Brabec looked into it, and creating a new Pagure
ticket is a matter of a few lines of code (already written).
Extending BBA with a "discussion link" in each blocker row
should be trivial as well. I think that's all we need for
trying it out.
The blocker bot watching and updating the issue should be
fairly easy as well, I hope, but as described above, we've
hit an issue where Pagure API doesn't allow comment editing.
Lukáš implemented a workaround that adds a new metadata
field on the right side of each Pagure ticket showing the
count summary. It's barebones, but at least something. We've
haven't yet looked into writing the listener code, that
would listen for Pagure events on the message bus and react
to them. We also haven't looked at Bugzilla updater as
described in the proposed workflow (that's really a cherry
on top, we don't need it right away).
