RT2 could probably be made to do that kind of thing via scrips.  RT1 would 
require more hacking....

This sounds to me like a web interface to Aegis (a free version control 
system with configurable test and review mechanisms for checkins, among 
many other features) might be closer to what you want, though.  Although 
I'm not aware of any of those, either... possibly RT2 with scrips acting as 
a front end to Aegis?
