Sorry, I only answered half of your question in my previous mail, the
half about how to publish changes to the master repository.

For publishing your changes on your own, without involving the master
repository, see the Bazaar Users guide.

I know that sounds like "talk to the hand", but IMHO we need to avoid
duplicating all the existing Bazaar documentation in our Emacs-specific
doc.  Our document should tell Emacs developers specifically what they
need that isn't covered or isn't easy to find in the existing docs.

So for example, Emacs devs need a recommendation for exactly how to set
up a shared repository / branches locally, in a way that will work well
with typical Emacs development.  We should provide that.

But as for publishing branches independently -- there are many ways to
do that, they're all pretty easy, and none of them are really specific
to Emacs development.  The answers to such questions should be found in
the generic Bazaar documentation, and where that documentation is
insufficient, it should be improved in place.

(If I knew one good answer to your question, I'd say it here, of course,
but there are many ways to publish Bazaar branches, starting with "just
make your shared repository all accessible via http://";... beyond that,
it just depends what kind of access control you want and other factors.
I can't give a better answer than the Bazaar docs would provide.)
