I just had a go and it appears to have worked, at least according to

Only had a couple of problems. One was missing key type from the
ssh-keygen command but PatrickDavies has corrected that on the wiki now.

The other main problem was I have an ancient version of Bazaar, and the
repository formats have changed so I had to download the source for the
latest version.

I used bzr checkout as suggested by someone else in this thread as well.

When transcribing later portions of the audio (i.e. 20-30 etc.) should
it all be done in the same file and can bzr handle multiple people
editing the same file (I assume it has some kind of conflict resolution)?

On the upside .trs is just XML and not very difficult to understand. The
only problem I can see occurring is if two people create new speakers or
topics at the same time the IDs will collide (read the XML if you don't
understand why).
