This is a problem with the source package importer on Launchpad, not a problem
with Bazaar in general.

Essentially the UDD importer on Launchpad is completely hosed.  Since Xenial
opened, I think it's sadly no longer feasible to use for *any* source package

What I do these days is `apt-get source` the package and then use `gbp
import-dsc` to get a nice git-based repo to work on.  You can use chdist if
you need to work on the source for Ubuntu (or Debian) versions other than the
one you are running.
