Note that I'm only commenting on what's described in this forum. I
don't know when the changes you describe were made. I'm still using
Bazaar 1.5, and won't be using a newer version until it's available in
Debian ‘testing’.

So, to the extent that there are other users with similar policies,
there will be significant lag time between when changes are made in a
Bazaar release and when feedback comes from such users.

My suggestions for improving the message were only for the sake of
fixing a minor issue in one shot, rather than having it creep into
more places. I'm not wedded to the specific message wording; I'm more
in favour of incrementally moving in the direction of consistent and
less-confusing UI.
