Martin and I are interested in feedback about bzr-builddeb, similar tools,
and any other practices around using bzr for packaging.
What are you doing? What works well? What is painful?
Thanks for your input.

I can add https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BzrBuildpackage which is a shortened
version of the README in bzr-builddeb.
I have been developing that for a while now. It is a reasonably capable
plugin of similar level to the other similar things for different
systems, though there are a few things to work out.
However it also has some unique features that I found interesting, and
plenty more are planned. However it is only really things that I have
thought might be useful, so it would be good to discuss them with a
group of people with experience.
I would also be interested in seeing where Ubuntu are thinking of going,
and contributing some ideas to that process.

The other people that I know might be interested in this are Wouter,
Jelmer, Reinhard, Martin and perhaps Lars.
