Re: [Evolution] Mad Idea... Bugzilla -> vCard?

How's this for a mad idea: a backend in Evo which generate Tasks based

status of bugs can be seen in Evo, without having to load a web browser.

Is it possible to write CORBA servers in Perl?  If so, can a backend to
Evo be written in Perl?  If I could write some code in Bugzilla which
displayed a bug report as a vCalendar to do item, surely this would be
quite trivial.

If this is feasible, could the Evo developers give me some hints about
how this would work please!

Not being a bugzilla expert here I might be talking out of my *ss but
from the looks of it, couldn't a perl script be written that goes into
the MySQL db and extracts the bugs and write them directly into the
local/Tasks/tasks.ics file in the appropriate format.  Granted, direct
file modification is not recommended by the average user but it really
doesn't seem too complicated.  Why go through the effort of using CORBA
(or ORBit) and making all kinds of modifications to evolution and/or
bugzilla.  I don't know, I may have just misunderstood the question but
it seems like a very simple perl script could do the task you requested
and probably make your breakfast as well :)
