Philippe Wolkowicz, Software Engineer at Lahav IAI

This is great work and very useful. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Great job!

Sami Khan, Software Configuration Analyst, GMAC.

I found it very useful. It answers a real need partially fulfilled by ClearCase with the command cleardiffbl. It helps me to make a VDD (version description document). The UI is well designed, user friendly and simple.

Pierre-Luc Bouchard, CM Administrator, Canada.

A smart tool for saving time of the configuration management team by supplying team leaders and developers a planned and tested method to manage their own ClearCase streams and baselines.
