I've used both RequisitePro ( based on Word Docs) , and DOORS ( based
on a web interface
to a database but you can generate reports in pseudo-document format )
avionics software shops. Neither tool addressed the problem very
well, and some of these
shops had written their own custom RM tools in-house.
If you think about it, the Requirements should be stored in a text
format ( e.g. HTML / XML ) so
that you can branch/merge them in Perforce. If this is acceptable,
you can likely put together
a system with some programming and open-source tools. I've worked on
several of these systems
in the past but none of them are public domain. Contact me
off-list if you have more questions.
