As a follow up to this, i've now adapted some of the scripts we use to
power commit notifications to support notifications for Bugzilla
changes as well.
A global feed for all activity on will be posted in

The behaviour of this can be configured in bugzilla/notifications.cfg
in the sysadmin/irc-notifications repository, much like commit

It uses Python 3 regular expressions for filtering of the following fields:
- Product
- Assignee
- Priority
- Severity
