CVS integration patch

I was wondering if someone could give me a pointer about what to do
with a set of changes/additions to Bugzilla that we've made that allow
greater integration between CVS and BZ. Should I submit these changes, and
if so as a patch or a tarball (which would be a lot easier ;)

The changes we've made build on the existing script
contrib/, and adds some more stuff. More
specifically the changes do the following:

* Allow a CVS commit log entry to be appended to one or more bugs: This
requires a patch to CVS to allow other scripts to cope with filenames
with spaces in them, a script that is called by CVSROOT/loginfo, and
additions to

* Autolinkify CVS commit log entries in BZ comments to point to a ViewCVS
install. This allows the user to look at general info about the file,
the old and new revision, as well as a diff between them: It currently
only requires a smallish patch against (but do it properly
will probably require yet another parameter added to BZ).

It does not does not do anything to control the bug (i.e. changing
status, etc).

At the moment this stuff Works For Us (TM). If it is of interest I'd be
happy to put in some work to clean it up to some degree. Just let me
know what you'd like to see.
