Hi Jacob. Always nice to speak to a fellow dane ;-)

You should note, that the WebService in Bugzilla 3.0 is far from complete 
(Bugzilla 3.0 is "frozen" at the moment, so even though I do have some 
patches for the WebService, no new enhancements are currently accepted). But 
sufficient for many common operations. I intend to provide some patches for 
Bugzilla, which I will try to get accepted into Bugzilla ASAP after the first 
release of Bugzilla 3.0 (I wrote several patches for the WebService in 3.0,

Thats part of the motivation for this library - yes. So, I would appreciate 
your feedback very much, and be quite happy to try to accomodate the library 
to your needs.

Yes, landfill.bugzilla.org/bugzilla-tip.

I have updated the CVS of bugzproxy to allow this site to be used (I had 
totally missed the case where a bugzilla server was not located at the root 
of a domain, but adding support for this was trivial) and modified 4 of the 
example programs to access this site by default, (ServerVersion, 
ListProducts, ListBug, ListBugs), as well as enabled the Test program to 
access this site.

You can access the CVS repo by using the information at 
if you have trouble using CVS or compiling the library, do not hesitate to let 
me know, and I will whip together a new release for you!

(The documentation at oss.dbc.dk/bugzproxy has been updated slightly too, 

Please do not hesitate to send me your comments/experience/questions, etc.
