There is a problem with using CVS/GIT and that is we are ASSUMING that
the version used is only a couple of days old, it could be as much as a
week old.  I prefer reports against valid and released versions as
problems found with a commit may be fixed with another corrective commit
(this has happened several times in the last year.)

+1 to NO CVS/GIT and NO CVS/GIT reporting in Bugzilla, unless we are
going to do build numbers based upon the day of build.
