In general, Breezy should work the same way with Git repositories as with
Bazaar repositories. I.e. you'd just run "bzr branch
git://github.com/jelmer/dulwich". Limitations with the Git supported in Breezy are documented here:
https://breezy-vcs.org/doc/en/user-guide/git_limitations.html?highlight=git

Do you have an example BitBucket URL that doesn't work for you, so I can test it here?

I don't believe we have actually tested Breezy on Mac OS X, though I'm not
aware of any changes that we made since the Bazaar released that would break
Mac OS X.

Cheers,

Jelmer
