BAV ties together Mantis bug tracking with SVN (and soon GIT) with an added layer to handle versioning of a software project. It makes mantis aware of exactly which versions of which files fix which bugs. This turns out to be extremely valuable information. Bugs that are fixed can then be included in releases, and since it is known what files fix the bug a release package to update the file set can be automatically created. Not only that, a corresponding package of files enabling instant rolllback to a previous version should something go wrong is created. Deploys to test, staging, and production servers can be automated. WebSVN is used to enable selection of files from an SVN repository, and also provides a quick way to diff files which have changed in a given version.
- Bug tracking linked with SVN
- Versioning of software including which bug fixes/feature additions are included in which release
- Easy rollback to previous versions if a deploy results in an unstable system
