I don't if I am wrong here, but I can help you if you like..


bzr push lp: ~user/serverguide/review-serverguide-ch(etc)

Once you have it set and pushed go into your
click on link of the code you just pushed.
then after it loads you will see you string etc.
branch merges
propose for merging (click on this)

Make a comment or what you need to put there etc.
