Greetings Asif :-)


Yes I wrote a "scrip" (what RT calls filters or plugins) that would 
parse emails from bigbrother and automatically open a ticket in RT.  
When BigBrother sent a recovery message, the scrip would auto-resolve 
the ticket as well.  This allows a tech to claim a ticket and comment on 
it etc. This also enabled us to automatically trend how many BB tickets 
were created and resolved over time, using RT and in-house tools.

If you are interested in the scrip I can dig it up and post it.  It's 
written in Perl using the RT API, it shouldn't be too difficult to 
modify it for use with hobbit.
