Thanks for the info, but I don't consider that particularly useful.

For most applications where a potential contributor won't use bzr,
patches against the latest alpha tarball should be enough. And in
contrast to gnulib, we don't have the repo as our official primary means
of obtaining the code, so it shouldn't matter that much.

I also doubt it would work without a bit of effort. git provides git
cvsserver [1] as part of the main git application. For bzr there is a
bzrcvsserve plugin [2], but that hasn't seen any commits since 2006, so
I'd be somewhat surprised if it were to work decently with current bzr.
On the other hand, there are no bugs reported either, so I might be
doing them wrong in assuming the worst without even trying it out.
