[Mailman-Developers] Should we move to Bazaar?

I think it is an excellent idea to move to a distributed source code 
system, and my time in the trenches with Barry doing python.org mail 
stuff makes me think that the easier it is for the lead developers to 
work directly with the support people, the better it is for the software 

I've really appreciated the quality of the hosted wiki solution 
lists.org uses, and directly experienced the difficulty of maintaining a 
host of services on a volunteer basis; system administration is really 
not a great hobby.

So I would land firmly on the side of going with bazaar and frankly all 
the cool kids are on Launchpad already. The fact that Barry can be there 
to apply gentle suasion is a key bonus.

I think any other option would be less ideal if it had less of the human 
component than this option does.
