I looked at this task yesterday, so I guess we started at the same time.
I have added your name to the task on the easy hacks site in the wiki to 
prevent double work.

As my javascript already is a huge load of unmaintainable code with probably 
less than 5 percent of the workflow I am quite happy that you stepped up.

One technical question. Do you already know how to interact with the bugzilla? 
I thought of creating the bug with javascript via the xml-rpc api of bugzilla. 
Some other, and probably nicer apis like JSON or REST seem not to be activated 
on the freedesktop bugzilla.
