Hi Dan,

I too have bemoaned the lack of bazaar support in Crucible and other Atlassian 
products.  There is an open issue for this here:  Please do vote for it and raise its 

Crucible could support your code in one of two ways:

1. bazaar-svn is fantastic.  Push your bazaar code to a central subversion 
repository and have Crucible watch the bazaar repository.

2. Crucible can watch a filesystem instead of a source control repository.  Have 
it watch the central folder where you push your bazaar commits to.  I hvaen't 
done this one specifically, but its worth a shot.
