Small correction, the second "bzr push
lp:~teemperor/gala/bug-fix-that-was-really-important" was supposed to
be "bzr push lp:~django/gala/bug-fix-that-was-really-important"

you usually do this to get the trunk code into the current directory:

 $ bzr branch lp:gala

 Make your changes and test them, then a simple

 $ bzr commit -m "I fixed a bug or something like this"

 to commit everything locally

 $ bzr push lp:~teemperor/gala/bug-fix-that-was-really-important

 and this to push it to a branch inside the gala project.

Note that the branch gets created automatically. Also, the ~teemperor
 part of the URL refers to your username. So if your lp username is
 "django", you would push to

 $ bzr push lp:~teemperor/gala/bug-fix-that-was-really-important

 The "gala" in the url is the project name (lp:gala -> /gala/). The
 last bit (bug-fix-that-was-really-important) is just a unique name
 that you give to your new branch.

 Now you can find that branch on the code subsection of the launchpad
 side (for example here https://code.launchpad.net/gala ).
 Then click on your branch and click "Propose to merge".

 This is a helpful tutorial for handling bzr:


We have another guide that describes this workflow in more detail, but
 I can't find it at the moment. Maybe someone else knows where it is
 hidden nowadays?

 Hello everyone!

I have a question about the overall work flow when working on existing projects. How do I 'fork' the code base to fix a single bug or implement a new feature. On Github you can easily fork a Github repo using the web interface, clone it to your local machine, commit changes, push it back onto Github and request a merge of your own repo back into the original repo.

 Thanks in advance!

 Kind regards
