Thanks Glenn. It actually wasn't clear to me before whether emacs-bzr-repository was a specially chosen name or just generic.

I made the changes and pushed them live, please check again.

> Sylvain has updated the live savannah. Please review...

Thanks. There is still a typo in the example scp command, as pointed out in sr #107118 comment #2. "emacs-bzr-repository" should only appear once, not twice.

Also it would probably be better to use a generic name like "my-repository", since it looks odd to see "emacs-bzr-repository" in eg the gsl instructions.

Well, I'm not sure I should have, but I checked in a new version of the relevant template file (attached). I think a cron job and/or Sylvain may have to push it to the live site, though. I could easily have made a mistake among the changes since I can't test it.

I also tried to incorporate the developer changes from 107118. Thanks for pointing that out, Glenn.

For those who have access to savannah web CVS (KarlF?), the file I edited was administration/content/gnu-content/bzr/index.txt.

I was under the impression that KarlF and others were hoping to revamp bzr support in general ... hope this helps.

This is the same issue as reported 6 months ago in sr #107118.
I hope you have more luck in getting a response from Savannah.

As noted on the bzr page for each project, the example bzr branch url given there is not valid if the project uses a different layout. 

I think the text could give an additional example on what to do then.

I've attached an alternative text as an HTML file and text version below (replace FOO by the project name) - it tells people they can look in the directory to see the branches.


Anonymous read-only access

bzr branch

Note: these paths are the default paths. Maybe the project is using a different layout.


Anonymous read-only access

The Bzr repositories for projects use separate directories for each branch.

You can see the branch names in the repository by pointing your web browser at

For a repository with only a top-level .bzr directory use

bzr branch

For a repository with separate branch directories (e.g trunk, devel, etc) use

bzr branch<branch>

where <branch> is the name of the branch you want.
