API for Debbugs
Summary: Enhance debbugs with an API so other applications can easily query, manipulate and submit bug reports.
Description: Currently debbugs supports a SOAP interface for querying Debian's bug tracking system. Unfortunately this operation is read-only. I propose an API for debbugs which supports sending and manipulating bug reports, without having to resort to email. This proposal does not intend to replace email as mean to manipulate the BTS but rather to enhance the BTS to allow other means of bug creation and manipulation.
This API would be very useful for writing desktop applications dealing with Debian's bug reports or enhancing existing ones like reportbug or reportbug-ng.
