Trunk In Soft Freeze

Hi Max,

If I could ask, how do you "freeze" the CVS tree in Bugzilla ? Is there
something you do to the CVS repository ? Do you somehow limit commit
privileges to a few people ?

I'm only asking to see if it would be beneficial to provide in Scmbug an
integration policy that:

- accepts commits only by a limited list of SCM users,
- accepts commits only if against bugs that have been flagged by special
keywords, e.g. "ACCEPT_WHILE_FROZEN_FOR_3.0rc1"
- accepts commits if against a bug that currently has a patch awaiting
review. Perhaps supply a deadline date for this.

I would be *very* interested in your ideas. I don't have a clear
understanding of what types of checks you might be interested in.
