Count this as another voice clamoring for a small/lightweight hosting service for bzr repositories. There's a lot to be said for the bitbucket/github model in minimizing the number of clicks to see code: Launchpad is good for what it is, but offers a maximal solution when something minimal is often desired.
Now that Git support has been added, there must be some infrastructure for multiple version control systems, so perhaps the time is right: please consider supporting Bazaar in addition to Git and Mercurial.
Yes. Please add Bazaar as a native repo. Currently I have to either use a bzr-git or bzr-hg backend. Having native support would be very cool, and BitBucket would be the ONLY site (that I know of) that supports all three major DVCS (Git, Mercurial and Bazaar).
So any updates on whether there are plans to do this ???
On Hold. Why? Is there any plan to actually support native Bazaar in the near future? What is holding up this feature? Is it business buy in from Atlassian, or just lack of resources to implement it? Surely there would be some Bazaar developers/users willing to assist in implementing this.
Bazaar is very well engineered, and there is some recent activity to jump start it again.
I would really like to use BitBucket for all my projects and have Bazaar support. I understand it is low priority for BitBucket/Atlassian, but I was wondering what it would take for Bazaar developers to be able to add Bazaar support to BitBucket. i.e. would BitBucket owners allow others to contribute to it's functionality?
Can the current system be segregated to avoid disrupting it during development?
Is there some kind of external API that can be used to provide a Bazaar plugin to BB?
So in essence, how can BB, with minimal effort, assist the Bazaar community to add Bazaar support to BB?
Bazaar is always my first choice for a DVCS, for several technical reasons, but I'm forced to use Mercurial or Git when I start working on a project that already uses one of those or when I use Bitbucket, which I consider a great service. I'd love to have Bazaar support in Bitbucket.
