I'm not quite sure where to do this from.

I've tried merging the svn repo into my local branch using -r 0. I've also
tried checking out the svn repo locally, and merging my local bzr branch
into it. Both result in a "nothing to do" message.

If I do the second one without the -r 0, I get this error:
bzr: ERROR: Prefix missing for branches/PluginDeveloper; please create it
before pushing.

Thank you for the link. I found this question there:

And it seems that the bzr-svn plugin should be able to do this now, so I
must be doing something wrong.
