We though to implement a bzr repository where Ubuntu developers can
commit a "transition list" (a template can be found at ). Tracker
will scan branch periodically, import new transition lists and report
new bugs in Launchpad without user interaction.
Actually, code  can file new bugs on staging.lp.net (and print
results in plain text format), so it can be used for experiments. You
just need to branch  and execude tracker inside of it (due to changes
not yet included in python-launchpad-bugs trunk).

We can achieve the same goal using tags and publishing the transitions
on a wiki page (e.g. Debian's ). IIRC, some developers are not happy
about this approach, but I can't remember reasons right now.
