Hmmm, that repo looks broken at the mo

$ sudo apt-get install  bzrtools bzr bzr-gtk bzr-builddeb
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
  bzrtools: Depends: bzr (< 1.11~) but 1.11-1~bazaar1~hardy1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

bzrtools is a dep of bzr-builddeb

I'll try the build from source later

[building from source]

Thanks, I'll try that when I get back but this is only a temporary
measure until the jaunty deadline. imho It would be very unhelpful,
maybe even 'inconsiderate' (Ubuntu CoC) for Debian to have to use
extra steps like that just to get access to the repo.

But we can worry about that in a couple of weeks.
