Given the spirit of easy collaboration that plays a crucial role in the
Ubuntu vision, a need arose for a powerful (D)VCS that could be used to
elegantly version something as complex as a Linux distribution. Nothing
of the sort existed at the time when bzr development began; this is
precisely why Linus, for instance, set out to write git. He wasn't
looking to write yet another VCS; it's simply that nothing else was
quite good enough.

Anyway, as far as ubuntu-server is concerned, I'd like to end this
discussion. Please refer specific questions about bzr to
bazaar-ng at lists.canonical.com.
