I try to find a day each week to keep the review queue down.
Part of that is selfish: if there's less in there, the odds of
my patches getting reviewed ought to increase. :-)
* dug deep into https://bugs.launchpad.net/bzr-fastimport/+bug/325331
which suggests that fastimport is badly broken for multiple branches.
As best I can tell, it's a git-fast-export or (git-xxx) bug.
* integrated Brian de Alwis' patch adding reset support to fastimport.
(He's currently importing the 1.1 millions commits in the NetBSD
tree into Bazaar using the initial cut of this patch.)
* initial coding for fast-import-filter enabling the splitting of
a subdir into it's own project while retaining history for just
those files. Also supports removal of files that should have never
been committed (nuclear launch codes, etc.).
* today: publish dev4 benchmarks results; release fast-import-filter
to early adopters; use new inventory-delta APIs in fastimport so
it runs fast on brisbane core.
* soon: more usertest tweaks to intelligently select a pre-converted
repository if one exists (upgrading large branches to the new formats
is taking 20 hours per format which kind of makes upgrading-on-the-fly
