I'm happy to hear that.

There are a couple things which you might want to update in Launchpad,
so that the project is using LP well.

1) This is a minor thing, butt setting your Trunk release series to use
your trunk branch means that in the future, Launchpad can do some
auto-detection of when things get merged, etc.

2) You have the project as owned by yourself, which is fine if that is
what you want. We frequently have plugins owned by the 'bazaar' group,
which is the group that owns 'bzr'. That allows anyone in the bzr group
to update settings. You may or may not want that. I've also created a
new group for one of my plugins, you may want to do that instead.

3) You should setup Malone as a bug tracker for your project. It might
be arguable that this should be one of the launchpad setup steps, rather
than the user needing to know to do it. The link should be:

But since I don't have rights to change it, I can't confirm the link.

4) There is a tradition of naming bzr plugin projects as 'bzr-foo' for
plugin 'foo'. 'bzrtools' is unique since it has the name already, but
'bzr-pqm', 'bzr-bisect', 'bzr-cia', 'bzr-email', ...

You can rename your project at any time by going to the 'Edit Project
Details' link:

Obviously if you rename the project the '/heads/' portion of all of
these links needs to be changed to whatever you set it to.

I filed a Launchpad bug about having the bug tracker information be part
of a new project setup.
