The defect tracking system DDTS uses special identifiers for bug numbers. This plugin automagically links DDTS bugs to the DDTS web system.

This plugin was written by request.

This plugin is similar to BugzillaLinkPlugin. However, with this plugin, the linking is automatic. Thus, ease of use is enhanced.

Version 1.0 has been released.
