I'm getting ready to upgrade the bzr repositories for the devel 
branches.  Those who were involved with the 3.2 release will remember 
some of the bzr-related issues we had to deal with.  Two of these--speed 
and weird behavior with the tags plugin--require a repository format 
upgrade to fix.

If you have bzr 0.92 or greater, you should not be affected.  People 
using bzr versions earlier than that will lose the ability to work with 
the LSB repositories on bzr.linux-foundation.org.

Upgrading should be fairly easy.  The Bazaar project provides packages 
for some distributions; it's at bazaar-vcs.org.  Mats has also created 
LSB-compliant packages of bzr (when coupled with the lsb-python appbat 
package) at his LF page:


Or, of course, you can grab the source and build it yourself.
