What's the preferred import format for automated status-fetching?

Asked by Adam Buchbinder on 2008-04-04

The webmaster for CUPS has offered to let me write a PHP script for status-fetching. What I want to know is what the preferred format for Launchpad would be. It was stated in a previous question that it's ideal to pull the status of more than one bug at a time, and something like CSV format is ideal. That said, what I had in mind was something like:

$ curl http://www.cups.org/launchpad.php?1+2+3
1,Pending,RFE
2,Pending,MOD
3,New,LOW

This fetches the status and priority of bugs 1, 2 and 3 in one request. It can be accessed anonymously. Before I implement anything, I want to know if this is the sort of API that Launchpad wants to have when it interfaces with other bug trackers.

This sounds great! Something like this would work for us in the short term, but I'll send you an e-mail, explaining a bit more about what we'd like to have, ideally.

I've gotten the email (though this means that anyone looking for this information will have to ask again; sorry!), closing.

Thanks Björn Tillenius, that solved my question.
