This request originated from a mailing list request to provide a new parm on the commit command to
allow a bug ID to be specified and stored as a rev prop.
ghudson then added the following suggestion:
"On the other hand, I've long felt that it would be a good idea to be able to set arbitrary rev-props in a
commit. If we had a good syntax for that, it would be almost as convenient as your proposed -id flag."
Here is the mailing list thread (the discussion spawned from another discussion so the subject does not
match). The thread contains some UI suggestions.
Perhaps this should be a second issue dependent on this issue, but I would also like to have a way to
require these properties to be specified, just as --message is required. An idea would be to supply a
name=regex pair in the configuration area that could be used to validate and require the property to be
set. It is definitely a secondary requirement but in the case of something like a bug ID, it would be
useful to be able to mandate that one be specified.
