All of these have stable releases that appear to be working with bzr 2.7.0. Landing them in homebrew is just a matter of getting some approvals. bzr-rewrite has now been accepted.

I just took over bzr-extmerge, merged some very long standing proposals, and cut a release. It seems like this is still a core plugin (it’s referenced in the documentation: http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/latest/en/user-guide/resolving_conflicts.html), but it also had never had a formal release.

I also pushed that out as a package to the homebrew folks for bzr-extmerge, and it’s pending approval.

While I was poking around, I also noticed that bzrtools latest release is not working with bzr 2.7.0:


$> bzr branch-history

Plugin "Bzrtools" is not up to date with installed Bazaar version 2.7.0.
There should be a newer version of Bzrtools available, e.g. 2.7.

I admit, I’m new on the dev side of things, but I’m willing to pitch in to make 2.7.0 + whatever plugins stable. On the topic of plugins, it does seem like the list of plugins on the bzr wiki is out of date:


I’m still working through these, but it seems like quite a few are abandoned and in some case have been rolled into bzr core. How can we get that cleaned up? It’s lousy advertising to list very old plugins that don’t work anymore.

Also, is there any plan/way to suggest that we look into rolling some fundamental plugins like xmloutput, bzrtools (or some portion of it), bisect, extmerge, etc into the core bzr codebase? It seems like quite a few critical batteries are not included in the box.
