Launchpad 2.1.12: new bug tracker plugin API

We’re proud to announce the release of Launchpad 2.1.12 and two exciting new ways for other services to use data in Launchpad.

Create a Launchpad plugin for your bug tracker

Launchpad can already import the status of a bug report that’s in another tracker, such as Debian’s BTS or Sourceforge.

Recently, we also announced two plugins — for Bugzilla and Trac — that enable two-way communication, starting off with sharing a bug’s comment history between those trackers and Launchpad.

We’ve published our bug plugin API on the help wiki, so now anyone can create their own plugins to enable other bug trackers to communicate directly with Launchpad.

  • assign Drupal roles based on someone’s Launchpad team memberships.

We’re working on support for Drupal 6.x right now.
