Introducing Bug 2 Trello

For some time now, I’ve been using Trello to organize my free software contributions. My main use is to give me a cross-project view of what I’m working on. As most of my contributions stem from packaging software for Debian and Ubuntu, I end up working on and following bugs across many different hosting projects (e.g. Launchpad, Debian’s BTS, GitHub). Each does a decent job (some better than others) of displaying and prioritizing issues within a certain project. Though a bug that is critical in a project that I’m only tangentially interested in might be a lower priority from me personally than a wishlist issue in a different project. So Trello has been extremely helpful in giving me a global view of how I should be spending my limited time across projects. Though putting information from all of these different places into Trello can be tedious…

So that’s why I created Bug 2 Trello, a Chrome extension to add bugs/issues to a Trello board.

It currently supports Launchpad, GitHub, SourceForge, Google Code, BitBucket, and Debian’s BTS. There is also support for some Bugzilla instances. This support currently requires that the JSON-RPC interface is available. It is known to work with with Wikimedia, Mozilla, KDE, Apache, and Redhat. It is known not to work with GNOME,, and Novell.
