This is an interesting idea.

None of the developers are malicious. The problem came up
because on 3 separate occasions, a developer who is not
very familiar with CVS somehow deleted 3 active branches.
As to firing developers, that's out of my realm. I am just
a lowly release engineer. :-)

One person suggested an open source product called Sinis.

This product intrigues me. Has anyone on this list used Sinis?
