Glad Review Board's working well for you guys!

Right now, there's no way of hooking in triggers for things like setting a
review request as submitted. However, there's a few things we'll be putting
in after 1.0 is released.

1) Extension support. It'll be possible to write third-party extensions that
run as part of Review Board and can respond to various actions, such as
closing a review request.

2) Web hooks. These are an emerging "standard" for doing an HTTP GET/POST to
a URL with some data when an action happens. We'll define a few of these,
probably creating/closing review requests and posting/replying to reviews.

Until either of these are implemented, I'd say write something that scans
recently updated review requests (everything since the last scan, let's say)
for these updates and then update Bugzilla based on any changes there. It
probably wouldn't be too difficult (provided you don't need any custom API,
but if you do and can submit a patch, we'll add it).
