I'll work on that soon (next week?)

For now

install bzr and bzr-builddeb

For quick and long guides documentation see


In short all svn/git commands are aliased to the bzr commands so you
can thing up svn/git command and just type bzr command and it should
do the right thing +/-

There is some nice integration with launchpad for example you can do

bzr co lp:~owner/project/branch


bzr co lp:~pkgcrosswire/libsword/main

After that just pull/push. To branch

bzr branch old/ whizbang/

This will create whizbang branch in the whizbang folder from the old
branch which is in old/ folder. (Unlike git where everything is

For bzr-builddeb read:


after installing bzr-builddeb.

In a nutshell

bzr bd

will export current version into the ../build-area; it will fetch
tarball (using our apt-repos, get-orig-target or watch file; you can
also specify to build from the upstream branch).

And after it's done the results will be in ../results; if something
when wrong you can analyze stuff in the ../build-area.
