It is beeing tracked very close, I'd say, in perforce

The problem is that trivial fixes are mixed with very intrusive changes,
so it is too risky to track it even in HEAD (I'm running HEAD on my
ZFS-only laptop!). OpenSolaris development is also very different from
FreeBSD's. We use to describe every single change very carefully in
commit logs, where OpenSolaris commits are based only on bug number and
bug descriptions. Many changes are committed at once, so it is hard to
pick only some changes.
