I used bzr + svn a while back but I don't know if it was this plugin
or an older one. I've since deleted it. Basically you just use the
normal bzr interface.

I didn't want to mention the Canonical connection because I felt it
would cheapen my endorsement of bzr (if you felt I used it because I
had to). It really is a great product. I've not used other dvcs tools
except when I copy and pasted commands from some open source website
in order to get their code. So I've used git and hg very briefly. As
far as I can tell they work about the same. I can't say which is
better but the fact that bzr has a cool logo (which I made from a
picture of an Iowa highway sign :-) should definitely sway your
opinion. ;-) The biggest change is going from a centralized vcs to

I will work on getting out there. The 2 hours isn't the biggest
barrier, it's more the combination of family and other commitments.
