Bug Parade e-mail automation meeting

As you know, the bug parade emails that Justin and Jess have been  
sending out are hand built and manually maintained. This is a tedious  
task and it also means that the JIRA filters need to be separately  
maintained or the emails and JIRA get out of sync.  Given that we now  
have two products that we will be releasing fairly often I think it is  
time to take a look at automating more of the release organization  

My thought is that we could use the JIRA XML feed and Infusion to  
build a component that would generate a page with the type of  
information that the bug parade emails have. Then the person running  
the bug parade could merely point to that page in their email and it  
would always be up to date with JIRA. This will have the added benefit  
that developers would communicate the status of bug parade issues  
using JIRA.

Joan, I think this would be a good piece of work for you to dig into  
since it would let you learn Infusion and the framework.

Let's meet on Tuesday 10am Eastern/ 4pm CEST to talk more about it.  
Let me know if that time doesn't work for you.
