I've been in Montreal since Wednesday for Ubuntu Below
As well as being my first time in Canada, it was my first time in
transit through the USA. Unlike in most countries, I needed to pass
through customs and get a visa waiver even though I was in transit. The
had some pretty weird questions, such as whether I was involved in
persecutions associated with Nazi Germany or its allies.
I am getting up to speed with Bazaar NG,
which looks like it should solve some of the scalability problems in
bazaar. The main Launchpad tree had more than 600 branches merged in,
comprising about 15,000 revisions). The equivalent
bzr tree is
significantly smaller, and contains the full revision history for the
line of development. As well as the performance improvements, the tool
feels a lot nicer to use.
