> Mantis has a SOAP API. Fortunately, there are wsdl2php converters, so it's not too painful. I've managed to extract something that vaguely resembles our changelog entries, e.g.
I ran into one problem here: Attributing patches. For example (an actual generated entry):
- Update bigdump.php (patch #0001143) [Dirk]
That patch, however, came from Rouslan, my name is only there since I applied the patch (before Rouslan had commit access) and handled the issue.
I've asked on the Mantis mailing list and it seems the information who submitted a patch is not available via SOAP. And even then it wouldn't be clear, since we have issue with more than one patch attached, not all of which are working.
I guess we could work around that issue with specially formatted commit messages, but that's awkward and requires discipline ...
