questions from a new bzr user

Dear All,

I've recently started using bzr, after considering several other
options (some of my tribulations and reasons for choice are listed at bzr is a very nice
piece of software, and is actually quite enjoyable to use!!!

I have, however, a couple of questions for which I can find no answer:

1. I have a "central repository" in a server, and then do my work on,
say, a laptop. Other colleagues might be doing the same. Now, I'd like
to store my changes in the server. As my colleagues might have been
editing the same files, I use merge, not push. However, to use merge I
need to log into the server, and do a merge from there. Is there a way
to do the merge (going from my laptop to the server) issuing the
command from my laptop?

2. I cannot find post 0.7 releases of bzrtools as the link from the
plugins page takes me to an empty directory. Either the sources or a
deb would be fine. I found the deb package, but it depends on an
ubuntu package; I can force installation, and it seems to work, but I
don't like it. Are there places/repositories I am missing?

Actually, being directed to empty repositories has happend with some
other plugins. And for bzrk I was taken to files from late 2005
(though for this I saw the deb package).

Thanks again for this very nice tool!
