After a couple of hours hard work today, I finally got "lightweight" checkouts of Subversion branches in Bazaar working! I can now run
bzr checkout --lightweight svn://svn.samba.org/samba/trunk samba-trunk
and then end up with a proper Samba tree. Unfortunately, the size of all the files is still 0 at the moment, but that should be fixed soon.
Hopefully, this is the next step towards using bzr as a svk replacement.
Oddly enough, I have been contributing to Subversion as I hit a few problems in their Python bindings.Go Top
