P4DTI issue job000951

TitleBugzilla bugmail doesn't work any more
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionBugzilla 2.17.x doesn't have the "processmail" script used by the P4DTI to send bugmail when bugs change.
AnalysisWe need to replace this script. The processmail functionality has been taken over by the Bugzilla::BugMail Perl module. The Bugzilla project is interested in a replacement for this script [1], and may even add the script which we have written to Bugzilla before the release of 2.18.
Note that the replacement script needs to validate its input. Note also that checksetup.pl needs to be aware of the script so that it can set the permissions on it appropriately.
And the P4DTI needs to be able to find and invoke the new bugmail script, or the old processmail script, depending on the version of Bugzilla we are integrating with.
