Description Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-02-23 13:24:29 UTC
In the core repository there is a Python script

This can download all sorts of interesting bug attachments
("bugdocs") for testing purposes from various bug trackers,
currently including bugs.freedesktop.org, openoffice.org bugzilla
and bugzilla.redhat.com.

There are more bug trackers that contain interesting attachments,
and support for these should be added:

- Novell bugzilla
- Launchpad
- whatever is used by KOffice/Calligra
- whatever is used by AbiWord/Gnumeric
- anything else likely to contain ODF or other office format bugdocs

This requires no LO code or C++ knowledge whatsoever.

For launchpad, this:
is the way to go.
Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2012-04-11 12:34:08 UTC
FWIW, IIRC the reason I didn't just implement it (as was my first attempt) get-bugzilla-attachment-by-mimetype with python-bugzilla or similar was that classic issuezilla didn't support xmlrpc and there were little glitches on different bugzilla's. Other's milage may vary. 

Currently problem with novell bugzilla IIRC is that it doesn't provide the body of the attachment in the default query like the redhat and fdo ones do out-of-the-box, so probably just a little tweak needed to do that

Launchpad developers said that they don't have enough man power to improve the bug searching capabilities of launchpad api[1].
