Anyone know of a good sitemap generator plugin/script for Mantis? Any help/pointers much appreciated! :D

What do you mean by sitemap? What are you expecting to see?

An XML sitemap file, that would be submitted to a search engine...like Google for example. We have tens of thousands of entries, and would like to be able to pass those to Google so they're more easily discovered.

Looks like a good idea for a MantisBT 1.2.x plugin. I'm not aware of existing implementation of this.

@vboctor: Thanks for the reply! If I get the chance to work on it, I'll see if I can't pass the code along to the community :)

The XML file is just used to help the search engine but if your bugs don't have a direct link (even if specified in the sitemap file) they will be ignored by the search engine.

I just tested Google with my bugtracker (without any sitemap), it seems to work fine (take a look with the following words longcf site:bugtracker.morinie.fr).
