Using OpenSSH with bzr

One of the transports available in bzr is sftp. This is implemented using the Paramiko SSH and SFTP library. Unfortunately there are a few issues I experienced with the code: Since it is an independent implementation of SSH, none of my OpenSSH settings in ~/.ssh/config were recognised. The particular options I rely on include: User: […]

Comparison of Configs/Aliases in Bazaar, CVS and Subversion

When a project grows to a certain size, it will probably need a way to share code between multiple software packages they release. In the context of Gnome, one example is the sharing of the libbackground code between Nautilus and gnome-control-center. The simplest way to do this is to just copy over the files in […]

Version control discussion on the Python list

The Python developers have been discussing a migration off CVS on the python-dev mailing list. During the discussion, Bazaar-NG was mentioned. A few posts of note: Mark Shuttleworth provides some information on the Bazaar roadmap. Importantly, Bazaar-NG will become Bazaar 2.0. Steve Alexander describes how we use Bazaar to develop Launchpad. This includes a description […]

Version Control Workflow

Havoc: we are looking at ways to better integrate version control in Launchpad. There are many areas that could benefit from better use of version control, but I’ll focus on bug tracking since you mentioned it. Take the attachment handling in Bugzilla, for instance. In non-ancient versions, you can attach statuses to attachments such as […]

Bryan’s Bazaar Tutorial

Bryan: there are a number of steps you can skip in your little tutorial: You don’t need to set my-default-archive. If you often work with multiple archives, you can treat working copies for all archives pretty much the same. If you are currently inside a working copy, any branch names you use will be relative […]

Merging In Bazaar

This posting follows on from my previous postings about Bazaar, but is a bit more advanced. In most cases you don’t need to worry about this, since the tools should just work. However if problems occur (or if you’re just curious about how things work), it can be useful to know a bit about what’s […]

Bazaar (continued)

I got a few responses to the comparison between CVS, Subversion and Bazaar command line interfaces I posted earlier from Elijah, Mikael and David. As I stated in that post, I was looking at areas where the three systems could be compared. Of course, most people would choose Arch because of the things it can […]

SCM Command Line Interface Comparison

With the current discussion on gnome-hackers about whether to switch Gnome over to Subversion, it has been brought up a number of times that people can switch from CVS to Subversion without thinking about it (the implication being that this is not true for Arch). Given the improvements in Bazaar, it isn’t clear that Subversion […]

6 January 2005

Travels I’ve put some of the photos from my trip to MatarĂ³, and the short stop over in Japan on the way back. The MatarĂ³ set includes a fair number taken around La Sagrida Familia, and the Japan set is mostly of things around the Naritasan temple (I didn’t have enough time to get into […]

15 December 2004

MatarĂ³ The conference has been great so far. The PyGTK BoF on the weekend was very productive, and I got to meet Anthony Baxter (who as well as being the Python release manager, wrote a cool VoiP application called Shtoom). There was an announcement of some of the other things Canonical have been working on, […]
