As of today, the checkbox development will use Git for version control,

process your merge proposals and Tarmac will stop looking at lp:checkbox.
Daily builds in the dev ppa  are already building debian packages using
git-build-recipe and the same git-dpm packaging branches that we have in
. If you have work-in-progress bzr branches, please create new merge
requests but this time from a git repository that you own.
Even if the switch from bzr to Git can be done today, a few action items
have to be completed, such as:
- Set up git recipes for testing/stable ppa
- Fixing autopilot in mini-ci (i.e clone lp:plainbox)
- ReadTheDoc update, pull from git repo now, not bzr trunk
- Re setup lp automatic translations
I'll post another update once everything is completed.
But hey it's time to profit and enjoy working with git NATIVELY :)
Thank you ~checkbox-dev for all your help and contributions.
