A Test Bzr Site

	Hey hey. So I've set up a read-only bzr mirror of our CVS,


	That's running "Loggerhead", a bzr repository browser. We are
running a stable version of Loggerhead, not the trunk, so it might not
have every bell and whistle available in the dev versions.

	Currently it has all the Bugzilla branches imported into it,
and I've tagged every release in every branch. 

	You can check out a branch with a command like:

	bzr checkout bzr://bzr.bugzilla.org/bugzilla/trunk

	You can also use "http://" if you're behind a firewall that
doesn't allow "bzr://".

	There are some minor problems with the importer that does the
mirroring, but those problems wouldn't carry over into our actually
using bzr, if we decide to go with bzr. The known problems are that
non-ASCII characters in commit messages sometimes become garbled, and
there are a few commits/files in branches that shouldn't be there (this
is due to a limitation of "cvsps", which the importer uses.  I would
fix it manually after the move, if we switch over).

	If you have any questions about Loggerhead or bzr, a good place
to ask is the #bzr channel on irc.freenode.net.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
