Do this:

bzr init-repo oship
#^^^ makes a local shared repo for you, which will make you much happier
cd oship
bzr branch lp:~vcs-imports/oship/trunk

Should do the trick to get you a branch. You can then do:

cd trunk
bzr push lp:oship

to push to the main oship branch on launchpad. From that point on,
people who want a branch of the code can just do:

bzr branch lp:oship
