I happened to notice that
bts-link‘s maintainer called for help, which triggered more interest in that tool.
I’ve started working on
bts-link to see how it works (cool, it’s Python 😉 and if it can be useful for Helios, and started implementing GForge tracker support in bts-link. That should help keep track of Debian bugs wrt upstream bugs for projects hosted in GForge forges (like Sympa, for instance, whose bugtracker is hosted in SourceSup).
You may find my git repo at http://www-public.it-sudparis.eu/~berger_o/git/bts-link.git which hopefull contains my proposed changes (I’m new to git, so I hope I did everything right…).
