Ok I just checked this out and it does not fit to our needs.

First you need bugzilla wich we don't use, second it only works as a
cgi not as a cmd line client like cvs.

Thanks for the link, however if anyone else knows another tool that
would be more "SCM oriented", I'd realy be glad to know about it.


Currently the only option is to tag your changes before committing.  This will allow you to roll-back via the installed tag.  To do this effieciently, you'd have to write a script that either did a diff or stat of the working dir and scanned the output for changed/added/removed files and applied the tag only to these files.

CVS v 1.12.xx has new functionality for commit-id's but it is a new feature.  And from what has been said in previous threads in this forrum, it is an incomplete feature.

BTW, why is roll-back such an important feature for you?  In my experience rollbacks are few and far between if code is carefully tested and dangerous code is tested on branches.  Anyhow, I have never missed the rollback feature.

Happy trails,
