Integration with Perforce SCM?


I was wondering if there were any plans to offer integration with the Perforce SCM product, much like you offer integration with CVS. 

An integration kit is available from if that's of any help.

Having a way to integrate the bug tracker with this SCM product would make it a much more attractive option for our company.

We do have integration with Perforce, its just not widely advertised since we only added it a few months ago (but it will be when 3.0 comes out).  It works with the current 2.0 version though.

If you've bought FogBUGZ and want to use the integration, just contact us at

Just to push my luck, but ... while we are at it, has anyone looked at BitKeeper integration?  BitKeeper offers a very similar interface to CVS Web that could likely be used.

We can integrate with any source control system as long as you have

(a) a little perl script or whatnot that runs when files are checked in, and hits a URL to notify FogBUGZ of the change. We ship an example script for CVS and Perforce.
(b) there needs to be a URL, any URL, you can go to that shows diffs between versions and another URL that shows the log for a file.
