Bicho is a ruby gem implementing access to bugzilla. It is a library but comes with a simple command line client.
This release fixes some bugs and adds support for named queries.
From the API, you can give a bug number or named query, or a combination of many of them:
server.get(127043, 432423) => [....] server.get("Named list") => [....] server.get("Named list", 4423443) => [....]
Named queries will be “expanded” to a list of bugs.
or from the command line
bicho -b https://user:firstname.lastname@example.org show query-name
If you are using Novell’s bugzilla, Bicho includes a plugin that automatically authenticates using your .oscrc credentials.
