The Fast and the Furious: bzexport

If you’re a bzexport user, you’ll want to pull the latest revision. It’s recently been getting slower due to the number of http requests that need to be made (the tradeoff here is that it’s also been getting more correct), but I’ve pushed three patches that have reversed that downward slide into the molasses. By sending more data than is strictly necessary, caching information such as user name to email translations, and avoiding fetching data that rarely changes, I’ve noticeably improved the running time of bzexport on my machine. Give it a shot!

If you’re not a bzexport user, and you write patches that are submitted to bugzilla, you’re missing out. Bzexport simplifies that process of getting a patch out of your local machine and into the hands of your reviewer, making you a happier and more productive person.
