Hi Alan,

A little correction about the bzr usage. If you use "bzr branch" to
get the original code the "bzr update" doesn't keep you up to date
with launchpad, "bzr pull" would do that instead.

Instead you should grab the code with "bzr checkout" instead, then
"bzr update" will do what you want.

If you already have a branch that you got with "bzr branch", then
running "bzr bind" should fix this up and make it just like you
used "bzr branch".

(Just in case there is a bug here and "bzr bind" complains that there
is no location given then pass the command the URL to the branch,
and let me know so that I can fix it).

A couple more pointers for anyone that is interested in bzr. If you
run "bzr lp-login <your lp id>" then you will be able to get read/write
access to the shorter "lp:" URLs that launchpad shows you (assuming you
have write access to the branch that is).

Also, using "bzr+ssh://" instead of "sftp://" will be more efficient.

If anyone has any bzr questions then #bzr on freenode is very helpful.
