I'm posting this announcement to devel list, because I guess that many devs are concurrently working on multiple projects, and have created and/or applied various patches to these sites.

I don't think you'd need integration with the project_issue module per
se, but you would need a way to get the status of certain issues.
There's already an issue in the pi queue to provide an XML-RPC
interface, but there's no patch.  I think this is something that would
be nice to have, however.  Short of that I think you'd just have to
scrape the screen for that information, but I don't suspect that would
be too difficult.
