excuse me for my unexperience with bazaar/launchpad code navigation,
but from the page https://launchpad.net/bzr-repo-push I can't find
nothing to download/install

another question... on my work machine I can't install Python: can I
use the plugin equally ???

as a sidenote, on the page BzrPlugins the repo-push plugin is marked
as "not tested" on windows...

surely I'll like it

a note on the bazaar-vcs.org site: I'm on Windows 2000, IE version
6.0.2800, and when I open any bazaar web page in another window (SHIFT

it's a known bug ???

many thanks for your help, and the bazaar community for this good dvcs...
