That's great, thank you very much! :-)

A shame -- I had assumed that there was a fairly close relationship
between the Bzr family of developers and Ubuntu, and that it would be
fairly easy for you to get code accepted into the distro.

I do think this is one of the key things to focus on for QBzr.  The
major lack I see is not in the program itself -- you have developed
excellent code and functionality and I don't have any doubt that you
will continue to make it better and better -- but in the enthusiasm and
effort dedicated to pushing this code to downstreams (whether it's
Launchpad PPA's or Linux distros).

To a lesser extent this is also a problem for bzr itself -- more
specifically, the bzr/bzrtools mess that seems to keep cropping up every
couple of releases... :-(

It's great though that QBzr packages are now being copied across to the
main Bzr PPA.  This is a nice way of arranging things...

Thanks & best wishes,
