Re: launchpad-work-items-tracker: flexible enough for Debian?

Hello Paul,

CC'ing James Westby and keeping fullquote for him.

Right now it is able to pull WIs from Launchpad Blueprints (our
primary method), Launchpad bug collections (i. e. anything you can
express in terms of a search query, like "all bugs on project foo with
tag bar), or wiki pages. In principle, it can be taught to pull from
other data sources, of course. The transition tracker and Debian bugs
would be natural data sources.

Since I wrote it, James Westby has refactored the code completely,
with some more abstractions, and using python-storm. He can probably
explain better than me now which parts need to be changed (I'd be
interested in that as well :) ).

Indeed. Committed.
