Do you use bazaar? Let us know!

I bumped into the Who uses bzr page today again, and I'm impressed on how fast it grows, just a few examples:

- APT
- Drupal
- iPython
- GNU Mailman
- MySQL

Are you using it? Add yourself to the wiki!

  1. Not sure how realistic this list is. Drupal is still stuck with CVS 🙁

  2. Some projects have a DVCS mirror for their main CVS/SVN tree, where commits really reside. It may be the situation in Drupal.

    I find that hilarious, because it doubles the complexity of managing the source code and buys you nothing. If you set a BZR/GIT/HG mirror for your CVS, you have no fucking clue of what you are doing. Seriously, if that is you, be a hero and make us happy. Instead of painful transition time-windows or useless read-only trees, just import the history of the source to your new repository and let developers handle the pain of a new VCS for a couple of hours. They will be happy with the changes once they rediscover branches and merges.

  3. Drupal does not use Bazaar as part of its official infrastructure.

  4. I see people have already commented to this effect, but it would be really good if that page was divided along the following lines:

    * projects that use Bazaar as their primary VCS (use it for trunk); and
    * projects that have a supported Bazaar mirror of their repository

  5. In fact, I’ve just gone and done it.
