P4DTI issue job000948

TitleNew Bugzilla groups system not supported
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe 2.17.x development releases of Bugzilla have a table-driven groups system, replacing the existing "bitset" groups. The P4DTI will need to support this system once the stable Bugzilla 2.18 has been released. Note that the same P4DTI versions will need to support either table groups (2.18 +) or bitset groups (2.16.x).
AnalysisRewrite group handling in dt_bugzilla.py and bugzilla.py so that bugzilla.py exports a consistent interface to dt_bugzilla.py regardless of the implementation of groups: each user is a member of a number of named groups, each bug is associated with a number of groups (a maximum of one, up to Bugzilla 2.16.x). Detect the presence of table-driven groups and implement the same interface for those. Test by attempting an integration with Bugzilla 2.17.7.
