basically, nothing links a ticket resolution to a changeset. However,
thanks to the wiki syntax, it can be easily achieved. If you enter as
a resolution message something like Fixed in [XXX], it will
automatically add a link to the changeset in the ticket comment. The
same way, if in your commit message, you add Fixes #XXX, a link to the
ticket will automatically be added in the commit log to the ticket.

Even funnier, Trac comes with a post commit hook that let you modify
your tickets using a simple syntax in the commit messages:
"Updated foo.xx, fixes #XX and references #YY" will add the message as
a comment on tickets XX and YY, close XX and leave YY opened. In the
tickets, a link on #XX / YY will let you go to the changeset, and in
the commit message on the changeset, you will get links to the ticket.

And of course, on the changeset view, you have a list of added /
modified / deleted files, as well as the diff and a link to the
unified diff.

The same way, in the timeline view, with the previous example you will
- ticket #xx closed by john doe
- comment added to ticket #xx by john doe
- changeset [xx] commited by john doe, "updated foo.xx..." with links
to the tickets in the timeline view.

I think you can see all these features on
http://projects.edgewall.com/trac . It is the Trac used by the project
itself, and it gives a nice example of what can be achieved.

As I said before, nice and simple :)
