I'm happy to make the edits wherever.  I am, however, curious about a
couple things:
  1) How will people find it?
  2) Migration guide doesn't scream "find out how to use Bazaar
against a foreign branch."

I think the latter is especially true since I'm not concerned at all
about moving away from SVN, just interacting with it in a way I've
never had the opportunity to do before. :-)  One thing I'm concerned
about is leaving the user's guide the way it is for the Subversion
stuff.  I don't think it does enough to highlight potential issues.

Sure thing.
