Actually, I thought they were supposed to be split.  I had them all in
one place and split them on purpose.  I don't use that functionality and
it wasn't in the CVS version of the script before, though, so go ahead
and make it look like whatever you like.

I thought that might be the case.

reasonable assumption that anyone with commit access to the repository
should have access to the tracker?  Also, I wouldn't want the script to try and close any issues.  I only imagined that
it would annotate issues with information on related commits.  Since it
seems to me that some issues might require multiple commits, it seems to
me that closing the issues automatically on any commit would be bad, but
I have thought that having that log message and list of URLs to diffs
right in an issue would be handy in the past, and would almost certainly
not be bad.

This is about what I had in mind.  The users running will
have already authenticated to the CVS machine, so assuming that this
authentication can be relayed to the tracker service securely, then this
should be okay.

Yay!  :)

Do you know enough to write the SQL command (e.g. insert into
bug-tracker values ($body) where id = $artifact_id)?  I can put it in
the right place and fill in the variable contents in a few seconds.

Ooh, cool.  That bug had been getting to me.  I kept leap-frogging the
GPG code to new branches to test it with the CVS trunk until I thought
it was stable enough to merge.  That was generating VERY BIG diffs.  I
guess I never got around to filing my own report (unless someone already
spotted the duplicate and closed it - that rings a bell  :).
