I'm not sure if it is considered policy, but using bzr has certainly
been a best practice. As both the upstream project and Ubuntu use bzr,
using it allows us to have shared history with both the upstream
branch as well as the Ubuntu packaging branch. This makes merging
changes and cherry picking patches between the different projects very
easy. Though if you feel strongly about using git, I guess you could
go ahead. This isn't a particularly tight knit team.

Any one else feel strongly one way or the other?
