The original send-pr simply send an email to freebsd-gnats-submit at I wrote a script some years ago to parse the contents of that email and import it into Bugzilla using the Bugzilla XML-RPC API:

The advantage is that no changes are necessary to the original send-pr because the script would run on a server. I haven't adapted it to the Bugzilla that is running now, but it should be fairly easy. Maybe this could be of use?
