Hi Andrew,

To the best of my knowledge, the "Mirrored" Branch Type in launchpad
uses Bzr for the import within the background.  Therefore, if it's
supported by Bzr it'll work as before.  As it is, Bzr supports
'read-only' of a Git branch, which is perfect for this situation.  So
once an LP Gnome team admin moves the upstream url, it /should/ all be
