I'm not a bazaar expert by any stretch of the imagination, so take the
following with a grain of salt.

Somebody asked a question on Stack Overflow about how to wipe revisions
containing confidential files accidentally commited. According to an answer:

    1.) bzr uncommit -r X              # Where X is the revision I want to
return to
    2.) bzr commit                        # This created the local revision
    3.) bzr push --overwrite -r X+1  # This pushed the stuff to launchpad,

  -- http://stackoverflow.com/a/9277254/668807

Apparently just doing the push --overwrite to revision X didn't work ("no
new revisions to push") though that was 18 months ago so things might have

I guess the thing to do would be test it on a copy of the screwed up branch
to remove the risk of making things worse...

Best of luck,
