jirarest2 is yet another implementation of the JIRA(tm) REST-API[https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Remote+API+Reference] . This one for Ruby1.9.1 It is intended to be called within the shell to create and verify JIRA(tm) issues fast without a browser. There was no particular need for perfomance at the time of writing. This implementation is still a for cry from others like http://rubygems.org/gems/jira-ruby which requires oauth authentication. There are scripts to create new issues with watchers and link those to existing issues and to manipulate watchers on existing issues. *Use it at your own risk. Most of the API features are not implemented.* *Ruby1.9.1 is needed. Ruby1.8 doesn't work!*
