Use CVSNT (Linux/Unix/Mac/Win, GPL just like CVS) for each commit it
automatically creates a "commit id" and you can also specify user
defined change sets (eg: job numbers or bug numbers) and update/merge
based on the user defined bug number or the commit id.  

If you want "modern CM" features like change sets and mergepoints and
access control lists then I suggest you use CVSNT - one of the reasons
there are "two" CVS projects is so CVSNT can implement all this new
