It is possible to do some integration of Bug Number and a defect
tracking system by having the rcsinfo template provide a form for you
to fill in the bug number and haveing the verifyinfo trigger used to
validate that the log message provided by the user has a valid bug
number or other information.

If you are using the FreeBSD version of cvs 1.11, then the verifyinfo
trigger is even able to augment/modify the log message to reformat the
template and possibly add additional summary information about the
defect into the log message if desired.

I am not aware of any othters, but it might be desirable for the
commitinfo step to be able to prompt the user for information such as
the bug number or other information in order to better catch typos in
a bug number earlier. While this is possible if you are using a local
repository or the rsh/ssh transport, I don't know of any way to do it
with the :pserver: method of interaction.
