[Configuration management is]
tracking and control of software development and its activities.
That is, the management of software development projects
with respect to issues such as
multiple developers working on the same code at the same time,
targetting multiple platforms, supporting multiple versions,
and controlling the status of code
(for example beta test versus real release).
Tools and resources for managing and tracking computer program problem reports, or "bugs". These are generally used by programmers maintaining a large software project with many users, and a continuous release and revision cycle, complex enough so that problem reports can't be dealt with immediately, but need to be sorted, filed, categorized, prioritized, and assigned. These tools don't actually do the work of fixing the software, just keep track of the reports accounting.
