Package maintainer's foreword
As of 2012-11-15 the future of this software is uncertain as the
current development has stagnated. All the lead developers have left
Canonical (the project owner). You might want to consider migrating to
other alternative DVCS software, like Git or Mercurial, in a long term.

Distributed version control that is used in projects like managing
Ubuntu packages <http://ubuntulinux.org> and it is one of the funded
projects of Canonical.
- Uses one .bzr directory at the top of the tree
- The user interface is simple and familiar to people with experience
from CVS or Subversion.
- Offers a choice between centralized and decentralized/diconnected work.

man-in-the-middle attacks, bad mirrors, server intrusion or data
