The following instructions were written for cvs but also work for Subversion.

Hi. I've just deployed the integration between the RT bug tracking system and our CVS repository.

Per previous discussion, we're moving to a model where any non-trivial functionality change needs to be accompanied by a ticket open in the bug database. This will allow us to generate better release notes. To accomplish this we have created a syntax for manipulating tickets along with commits. If you are someone who has commit access but is not at MIT your commits MUST create or update a ticket.

To manipulate tickets you add some header lines to the top of your log message. The lines can be of the form header: value or rt-header: value. I'll show them without the rt-prefix.

Updating a ticket

To update a ticket, you include a ticket: or rt-ticket: line in your log. For example:

ticket: 1164

Return errno not retval when getpeername fails.

By default when you update a ticket:

  • the ticket is assigned to you
  • The ticket is closed

If these defaults are not appropriate for your action you can override them; see below.

Creating a ticket

You can also create a ticket at the same time as you commit. All you have to do is use new instead of a ticket number in a ticket line. However you almost certainly want to at least set the subject.

ticket: new
subject: Add AES support

Add an implementation of AES to libk5crypto.

In addition to closing the ticket and marking you as the owner of a ticket, creating a new ticket makes you the requester of the ticket.

Other Things to Change

The following additional commands are supported:

  • subject: changes the subject of ticket
  • status: [open|resolved|new|stalled]
  • owner: [username|nobody]
  • cc: [email address]
  • Component: change component of ticket [krb5-libs etc]
  • Version_Reported:
  • Target_Version:
  • Tags: [enhancement|nochange|noresource|pullup]

You could set version_fixed, but it is wrong to do so.

Also, note that you can update multiple tickets in one log message; updates apply to the most recent ticket: command.
