If you care about one more person's impression, it's that "Bazaar is
expected to change dramatically for the better in the next couple of
months" has been true (or at least claimed to be true) for the last year
at least.  After some point I stopped believing the promises.

I still hope that perhaps in a year's time Bazaar will become mature.
My definition of "mature" includes "has no plans to change the default
repository format again".
