> Yes, I can, but this patch will be much more complex, I think.
> My first aim was to introduce feature with minimal (but uqly) code
changes.
> If you're showing interest to this feature, we can coninue to make it more
> universal...
>
> 1st problem is quickly resolvable:
> a) We can publish the xml format (look at the xsd file attached) used by
> JIRA BTS and this plugin.
> b) Add plugin code into TSVN repository - so everyone can write it's own
> plugins while we can make additional
> BTS support included into our universal code. We can also use my plugin
code
> as part of tortoiseProc.exe (3rd),
> but if there is user's "rss_feed.dll" in current directory, it will be
used
> instead of our's inside code.
> Thus we can give simple temp. decision for developers, who are using
> unsupported BTS and don't want to download full TSVN code and libs - only
> picker.
>
> The 2'nd problem decision is simple too: we can apply XSLT transform
> (bugtrack::get_issues_xslt) to any data source and get our format...
> I think, first step will be BugZilla...
>
> What do you think ?
