[opensource-dev] Getting JIRA data from scripts

In case some of you wrote JIRA helper objects that got broken with the
JIRA updates recently here is a few hints:

Appending ?os_authType=guest to the end of the request will bypass the
OpenID check and allow you script to get the code directly, for
example

http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-2771?os_authType=guest

If you find XML easier to parse you can get all the data about a JIRA
issue in XML format by using the following type of URL:

http://jira.secondlife.com/si/jira.issueviews:issue-xml/WEB-2771/WEB-2771.xml?os_authType=guest

(Thanks to Sue Linden for providing the information :)
