Bazaar in the GNOME world

tags = [, , , ]

I was happy to see that John Carr has set up a Bazaar Mirror of all projects in GNOME Subversion, all created using bzr-svn. There's also a quick introduction to using Bazaar for GNOME developers on the GNOME Wiki.

Wouter, long time Bazaar user and GNOME dude, recently blogged about pushing Bazaar branches into GNOME Subversion, working around the restrictions imposed by the pre-commit hooks in GNOME Subversion.

The problems John ran into with memory usage in the Python Subversion bindings encouraged me to continue the work on bzr-svn's own Python bindings, thus avoiding any dependency on unreleased versions of Subversion and several other issues.
