Launchpad provides a free public import service which maps the development trunk of a project from Subversion or CVS to [http://bazaar-vcs.org Bazaar], and then keeps that trunk branch up to date. This allows you to make your own Bazaar branches from the project trunk, and keep them up to date by merging from trunk over time as you develop your feature.
To request an import, please:
Make sure the project is [https://launchpad.net/products registered in Launchpad], or register it yourself.
- There will be a "trunk" series for any new project you register. Go to that, and set the source details to the CVS or Subversion repository you wish to have imported. PLEASE ENSURE that you use MAIN as the CVS branch (this service only works with trunk).
Ask us to monitor the import and activate it if the initial testing looks positive. You do this by [https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad-bazaar asking a question] in the "Launchpad Bazaar" project in LP itself. Note that your branch will not be imported until you do this.
It takes about a day for the branch to be available, after which it will be visible in the Launchpad interface and can be downloaded using Bazaar. Once the import is established it will track the cvs or subversion branch with a delay of between 6-24 hours.
At the moment the service is restricted to tracking only the main branch of each project.
If you are having trouble using the service, please ask on #launchpad on Freenode, or mail the [mailto:email@example.com Bazaar imports team].
