RE: OpenSource CVS-related project Needs Developers!

I myself was weaned on Emacs.  As far as CVS interfaces go, I always run my
CVS session from my shell.

Creating a new tool isn't redundant if it offers new features, and in this
case I am going to be addressing a couple issues.

1. I deal with certification for safety-related products.  IEC 61508
requires pretty strict software lifecycle practices.  Among those are a
tight SCM process and change tracking (bugs).  ASMAI takes its own bug
handler and integrates CVS to create a base SCM system.

2. ASMAI is being designed per IEEE 12207 and IEC 61508.  This means that a
project being audited for its tools usage can point to ASMAI and state that
the tool is compliant to these standards, as well as beig coded per MISRA C
for safety.

3. It's fun to try new things!  I would love it if someone had created a
tool that blended bug tracking, version management, build generation and
project requirements all together with a simple shell interface.  Why not?
Stallman wasn't crazy when he started Emacs, but I know a lot of people that
said he was stupid for bothering ; )

Take care.
