Source: bzr
Severity: important

After buster has been released, I'm planning to replace Bazaar in the archive
with Breezy (www.breezy-vcs.org).

Breezy is a friendly fork of Bazaar. Unlike Bazaar it is actively maintained,
and available for Python 3. Breezy's command line is backwards compatible with
Bazaar. Its API is not compatible, but it should be fairly easy to port plugins
and other 3rd party users of the API to Breezy.

Breezy also bundles a number of plugins that were external in Bazaar and
packaged separately. Relevant for Debian: grep, stats, email, fastimport, git
and part of bzrtools.

I'm filing this bug to track the transition work.

Bugs that would be resolved by a migration to Breezy:
