No! As I said, it was not possible to install bzr on the server.

This clearly shows that you don't maintain any real Bugzilla
installation. "Install git, move from bzr to git, then upgrade your
Bugzilla to get security fixes" is extra work which not all admins are
ready to do. This is maybe fine for developers, but certainly not for
all admins. If you are happy with git, feel free to use it to maintain
your Bugzilla installation, but this shouldn't affect installations
already using bzr to get security fixes.
