Launchpad development moved to git


As of the end of last week, Launchpad itself is now deployed from Git
(self-hosted on git.launchpad.net) rather than from Bazaar.

If you have a local Launchpad instance (perhaps for development or
testing), then you'll need to switch over to our Git repository to stay
up to date.  I've updated the installation instructions on
https://dev.launchpad.net/Running, or if you know what you're doing you
can clone https://git.launchpad.net/launchpad or
git+ssh://git.launchpad.net/launchpad and fine-tune it yourself.

If you have open merge proposals against Launchpad's old Bazaar branches
(which isn't the case for many people, but there are a few), then at
some point I'll be closing those and asking you to re-propose them using
Git.  To make this easier, William Grant has helpfully put together
which has imports of all the active personal branches of Launchpad that
were on Launchpad at the point when we switched over; you can use those
as the starting points for updated merge proposals.  Let me know if you
need any help with that.
