Undefined.  I wrote it on work time for my employer's specific
requirements, and have not asked anyone if I can release it publicly.
The code is useful as a starting point for others, but hardcodes a lot
of policy specific to us.  I do not consider refactoring bugmap into a
super-duper general-purpose extension a good use of my time, since
doing that would result in a system approximately as flexible as
Python or Mercurial.

Nope, no public repo.  However, I've just written a stupid little
shell script to extract the history of bugmap from our internal
build-tools repo.  Bundle attached.  Make of it what you will.  If it
breaks, you get to keep *both* pieces!  ;-)

Good luck --
