[webkit-dev] Using GitHub to Contribute to WebKit (Experimental)

Bugs.webkit.org has an integrated bug tracking and code review tool. I find this integration is good as it stands. I use git for development and don't think there's anything wrong with the current tools.

But now it means I have to search in two places: Bugzilla and Github,
in case I want to look up some past issues/problems.

In fact, Github does not a way to search for review comments.

GitHub's API has hooks/events for comments on issues & PRs to where it would be possible to integrate WebKit's GitHub mirror with Bugzilla so that all comments on PRs could post back to the related Bugzilla bug.  Some convention would be necessary in the PR title or description to figure out which bug # it relates to, and a little work would be necessary to write out the comment into Bugzilla with some code for context (by taking the diff that's sitting on GitHub).

Definitely work involved, but doable.
