I guess that's not exactly clear yet to me: One problem with bzr as home for 
packages, that is not limited to the mozilla team, is that it can go out of 
sync with what's actually in the archive, e.g. if a MOTU would sponsor a 
debdiff. I guess partly due to this, and due to the fact that I wouldn't know 
what the right policy for uploads in regards to mozilla packages is, I was 
reluctant to not sponsor anything in this area. So what do you think is the 
right procedure in this case?
