savane external bug status tracking

Asked by Eliah Kagan on 2011-10-20

Are external bug statues from savane tracked in Launchpad? savane (the tracker used, for example, at http://savannah.gnu.org) is not listed at https://help.launchpad.net/Bugs/Statuses/External, but sometimes documentation is not fully current and I wanted to check before manually updating bug statuses from savane trackers (like the status of bug 403408).

This appears to be supported when you add a bug watch or register an
external tracker, https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/bugtrackers/gna.org
for example. However, syncing status or comments is not supported; the
support is informational only.

Strangely, bug #193742 implies that this _has_ been done, but the
change mentioned in the bug only appears to support registering remote
bugs in Launchpad, not the automated syncing of them.

I see that you've posted in bug 193742 asking for clarification and expressing the intention to file a bug requesting automated sinking of external savannah / savane bugs. Given that, and your explanation here, I'm marking this question as Solved. If you do file/find such a bug, I'd probably find it useful if you were to post about it or link it here or post about it in bug 193742 (or some combination of the three).

Thanks Gavin Panella, that solved my question.
