If you haven't already made a large investment in BugZilla, check out
CvsTrac. We have set it up here recently, and it is very easy to configure
and use. From a user perspective, it is also a lot less overwhelming. You
also get the added bonus of its timeline which views changes chronologically
in terms of commits with drill-down.

It is pretty solid too. The only feature I would discourage use of is the
cross-referencing to check-in numbers.

I am writing to see if someone can give me some information on integrating
CVS with Bugzilla.

I've scoured the web, without success, so I'll outline what I know so far,
and hopefully someone can pick up where I leave off, and point me in the
right direction.

I've implemented the Bugzilla email gateway, which can use an email to
append to a bug report or to change the resolution of a bug.

I understand that many people use a cvs loginfo script to send a specially
formatted email or call the Bugzilla email gateway script directly.  I've
found several references to this on various lists, and even in the Bugzilla
documentation, but no links to actual code to do this.

I've looked at CVSZilla, which integrated an older version of Bugzilla and
CVS, and added a web interface on top of things, but this is too heavyweight
for my needs, and doesn't work on recent Bugzilla code anyway.

So, information from anybody about a cvs loginfo (or other) script to pass
information to Bugzilla on cvs commit information would be vastly

Thanks in advance,

        - Brian Peterson

ANNOUNCEMENT: WebMets - a tool to generate software metrics from CVS

_Quick Version_:

- tool to generate software metrics from a CVS project
- allows you to compare your CVS project or an anonymous access project
against others
- you can see graphs of metrics created
- please give feedback on interesting results

_Longer Version_:

As part of my undergraduate dissertation at the University of Sussex in
the UK, I have created a tool to generate software metrics from CVS
repositories. This tool aims to extend typical metrics tools by using
the functions of CVS, namely the stored history of source files and
associated log files, thereby building up a picture of a development
project over time. The tool also allows the comparison of multiple CVS
projects. This is also made a lot easier because the files do not have
to be inputted, they are already stored by CVS in the repository.

In order to empirically test the tool, I have created a web site where
you can submit a repository (either your own, or an anonymously
accessible repository) for processing and compare it to other
repositories. You get to see pretty graphs of the metrics of your
project and gauge your software development versus other teams. It's
interesting and also rather good fun!

The aim of the web site is to collect feedback from developers/others
about interesting results generated and results that illustrate good use
of the tool. I would be very grateful for any feedback that you may

The address of WebMets, the web based version of the tool is:

Please submit your feedback via the web site or directly to me:

Thank you in advance for your time and please forward this message to
others who may be interested,
