Srinivas,

although i havent worked w/ ClearCase or Accurev, what immediately comes to
mind is that those are much more
than a VCS. I think subversion coupled with a front-end like
Trac<http://trac.edgewall.org/>enables teams to accomplish much more
than they
would in the absence threreof.
Did i mention the combo is free? :)
