Some questions

Hi Florent,

See our original announcement:

Breezy is a friendly fork of Bazaar. Canonical is not involved in
Breezy and there is no CLA.

We forked because we wanted to make a number of big changes that would
have been hard to make inside of an established project like Bazaar.
(see the announcement for details)

I don't know what GNU or Canonical's plans for Bazaar are, and
whether a 2.8 is going to be released.
