Sounds like you may just be shifting the "inaccessible off-line  
repository" problem from svn to rt.  Not clear.

The point is that the ChangeLog file ought to be complete of itself.   
If you want to make it more complete by pulling in info from your  
bugs database in addition to the change notes themselves then I'm all  
for it (but I'm not writing the software to do it).
