The webtools are no long automagically updated from the CVS tip, which is
generally a good thing.  However, we need to figure out the right strategy for
keeping them up-to-date, perhaps involving IS in the process.

I doesn't seem like involving IS is a good strategy here. This seems
like a job for a developer. I guess that person is me. Most of the tools
don't change very often. They'll get updated as needed. 

Bugzilla changes a lot. I've been updating it by hand once every 
couple of weeks or so. To make it easier to keep track of changes
and to back changes when there are problems i've written a small
script for doing cvs updates. It checks out by the current date/time
and writes the command to a log file. Use the log file to change things
back to a last known good state.

Dawn, is this something you might get to soon, or should this perhaps be reassigned?
Well, Bugzilla gets well taken care of now.  The other tools tend to get updated
when someone gets pissed off enough about the lack of some feature that's
available on the tip to harrass someone until it gets done...

Probably all we need are clear instructions for each tool how the updates get
done, and then Myk or myself (who are the people everyone usually bug about such
things) can do them easily every so often.  Right now, we do them when people
complain or when there are security problems, and usually hack the update in and
hope we don't break it :)

Myk probably knows most of them better than I do, Bugzilla and Bonsai are the
only ones I'm familiar enough with to touch.

We seem to have a strategy for keeping these tools up to date now.
