I searched for Subversion-Bugzilla integration and found scmbug  
(http://freshmeat.net/projects/scmbug/) which provides integration  
for Bugzilla and SVN or CVS.   A sample page is at http:// 
bugzilla.mkgnu.net/show_bug.cgi?id=353.  I have no idea if  
Infrastructure supports it, would consider supporting it or has a  
better alternative.

Since SVN has a global version number which would make it fairly easy  
to retrieve all changes from a particular commit, it might be  
sufficient to manually put the revision number in a Bugzilla comment  
after a SVN commit.

I have been using Jira issue numbers in my log4cxx CVS commits and  
Bugzilla issues in my log4j commits.  I'm hoping that when we convert  
to Subversion, Jira will be able to associate the log4cxx commits  
with the corresponding issue.

I was not involved in the selection of JIRA for log4cxx.  The recent  
Linux/BitKeeper unpleasantness make clear that a "friendly" software  
vendor might have a change of heart.  I'm glad that vendors like  
Atlassian support ASF, but the risk of a vendor change of heart and  
the cost of migration must be weighed into tool selection.

I wasn't proposing a course of action, I was trying to collect  
information.  I knew that we did not have issue/source code  
integration with our current Bugzilla+CVS set up and was vaguely  
aware that it was available in Jira+SVN and was unaware if it was  
available in Bugzilla+SVN.  If the integration was desirable, then it  
would be good to know whether it would be better to make any changes  
at the same time as the SVN switchover.
