12 Oh, missed that one. Maybe that makes perforce more "auditble" or whatnot.
14 I rather like the changelogs auto-generated. A method to link my git
15 commit to bugzie would be awesome. I *do* envy debian and others for the
16 auto bughandling they have. Previewing more than a raw number would also
17 reduce (not eliminate) the errors committed, i guess.
