When a software change occurs in the SCM system, a log message may be manually supplied by a user to describe the change. Using an activity_commit integration request, this log message is automatically inserted in the bug-tracking system against the specified bug id. Additional changeset information are automatically detected, such as the branch name that hosted the change and the list of files affected by the changeset. This information complements the users original log message when added in the bug-tracker, as shown in Figure 4-1.

Added a glossary, and a document conventions section, just like the Bugzilla Guide uses. Began linking names of systems/tools to the glossary, and using a url to their webpage there. This will unclutter the pdf version of the document from url links inlined with content.
