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