If we keep the cvs and bug tracking seperate, my life and the lives of the
engineers will be more complicated when what we want in convenience.  

.  We will have to place comments in cvs and in the bug tracking system
.  When management wants a report, they want a 1:1 correspondence between
what code was touched, the comments and a list of everyone who touched the
file(s) in question.  It'll end up on my desk and I don't want to do it by
.  When a bug crops up, and they will, the management wants to "see" how we
are handling the issue ... they want to see these two items joined at the

I'm not saying that these two items can't be kept separate but selling the
idea that it's a much safer method of development would be much more
difficult.  They want to see everything connected.  After the last snafu,
their feeling "secure" is worth the time and effort to get CVS and a bug
tracking system to work together.
