You probably mean "Canonical's blessing" there. It has no particular
Canonical involvement as far as I know, apart from being developed in
a bzr plugin which is also worked on by core bzr devs. There's no
indication at this stage as to whether it'll be supported in
Launchpad; obviously, a decision on that would require a working
plugin before it could be meaningful - you'd need to know the
load-characteristics of the git server plugin, the dependencies, etc.
before a commitment could be made.
