With respect, I don't agree. I think (the author of fossil too) that bug
track is a foundamental part of a project so is natural to have source code
and bug track in the same tool. It isn't only natural but useful too, for
example, in off-line work to have a copy of source code, internal documents
and bug track, eventually synced back when back on-line.
It's a lot of work, true, but it's a lot of work change scm from cvs vs.
fossil|git|whatever. Why not rethink bug tracking too, while doing this
