When you are committing a change that addresses a specific JIRA please start the comment with the JIRA-ID.  For instance,

    svn ci -m "GERONIMO-nnnn Updated this that and the other thing to fix this annoying bug."

This will allow JIRA to include the repo update history for which files were affected by this issue.
