Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] Add automatic generation of a todo item page

I should say a little about how this works....

We have one master tracker bug for todo items. Below this there are 8
further tracker bugs for different topic areas. You see them with this
URL

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/showdependencytree.cgi?id=636035&maxdepth=1

Any feature request for libvirt should be reported in bugzilla.redhat.com
under the 'Virtualization Tools' product and 'libvirt' component. This
is the so called 'upstream' bug tracker (distinct from Fedora/RHEL bugs).

To make it appear in the todo item page, a new feature request should be
made to block one of the 8 topic bugs seen above. The subject of RFEs
should also have a special form 'RFE: keywords: long description' eg
this bug 503407

 RFE: Autostart delay: need to add user selectable delay to virtual machine autoboot

In the todo page, the 'RFE' bit gets chopped off. The first keywords before
the ':' get made into bold text. The rest is passed through.

To generate a todo.html.in page you can just copy todo.cfg-sample to todo.cfg 
and enter your BZ username+password. Then 'make todo'. You should now get
a pretty todo list - see the attached file. It is my intention to automate
this so we have an up2date todo list on the website at all times

NB, you need to install perl-BZ-Client and perl-Config-Record RPMs for the
script to work

        <h1>Todo list</h1>
        <p>
This is a summary of all the ideas submitted for future todo items in
libvirt. Listing an idea here does not imply that it is committed to
for inclusion in libvirt, just that someone thought it might be a
useful feature. Discussion for final approval of features always takes
place on the <a href="contact.html">development mailing list</a>.
If you intend to work on one of the items here, it is recommended to
add a comment to the corresponding bugzilla ticket to this effect.
This will reduce the risk of duplicated effort between developers.
It is also strongly recommended to mail the development mailing list
with proposals for new APIs &amp; XML before fully implementing them, to
allow for early design review.
