To be clear, I have not set up ANYthing that would push from garp (the
machine hosting pootle.metalab) back to anywhere else with bzr. If
there's some sort of automatic sync that pootle is trying to make
happen, I don't know how it's doing it or where other than garp it's
going. Honestly I think everything happening in pootle is currently
staying on garp.

I think we need to either have it publish a
http://pootle.metalab.unc.edu/bzr/mailman/ branch or, as Barry
suggested, have it push back to launchpad. Both of those would require
some setup and I'd like to hear what's optimal before I go digging to
figure out how to actually do it. :)

See above. afaik, there's no sync going off of garp at this time.
