[Chameleon-dev] chameleon cvs

I'm putting in place some slightly tighter controls on chameleon cvs, 
driven by the need to stabilize everything for the 1.99 release process, 
but also to provide better control over chameleon as a whole.

My first change is to track changes to cvs and have them sent to a mail 
alias.  I'm not intending to open this up to the world, but if someone 
has a need to see changes to cvs as they happen, then let me know and I 
may add you to the list.

The second change is a procedural change.  From this point forward, all 
commits to cvs that are of a non-trivial nature (like removing 
whitespace or debug statements) must be associated with a bugzilla bug 
number.  This is a tricky one, and I may be among the worst offenders ;) 
but I think it is critical to promote traceability and potentially 
discussion of technical issues in general.

Note that the second change *should* remove the necessity of anyone 
other than me being on the cvs notification alias since all bugs are 
copied to chameleon-dev at lists.maptools.org, which is a pipermail list 
that anyone can join.

Comments and suggestions welcome,
