A modern build and release management system supplies the change list information to the tools
above in form of a shell variable. Using Ant pseudo-code:

<project name="MyProject" default="all">
  <property environment="env"/>

  <target name="all">
    <property name="p4.change.list" value="${env.CHANGE_LIST_ID}"/>
    <!-- Code generation to contain release information goes here -->

Hope this helps.
