The way we approach this in our team is to have a bug tracking database.
When we fix a bug, we put a list of the files that changed in the database.
Then we can query the database by bug number, file, or whatever.  It's a
little more work, but more flexible than trying to use CVS for this task.

Subject: Tags usage -- comments please

In our team, one developer wants to make tags for a
few files; suppose he is working on 2 bugs, each
requiring changes in 2 or 3 different set of files, he
wants to tag each of those 2 or 3 files with the bug
number, so that he can remember which files are
modified for which bug.  I think this is the wrong way
to use tags, not the way they were intended to be
used. I think log message is a better way to use in
this case, we can later search the logs for the bug
numbers. He doesn't agree. Any comments for/against
this are greatly appreciated.
