I've used neither, in fact, I've only ever used CVS and SVN although I am
about to learn git for work, so if we could move to that it would help ;-) 

Serious comment - why move to BZR instead of Mercurial, which (I think is
what) the other Mozilla projects appear to be moving to?

Surely having BZR is just 'another new thing to support' from that point of

I'm sure I read somewhere in the discussion about it being a VM on some
server - being supported by Max. Surely moving to the same as the other
projects means that you have dedicated support etc. for that from the
Mozilla IT team rather than having to rely on one person... single points
of failure are bad and all that.

I'm not against moving, I just think it would be better to move to
something that's being used by other parts of the mozilla projects etc.

Although I do think this discussion should have been had BEFORE the bug was
open and the bug only opened once the discussion was completed...
