Oops.  Though I had resolved to say next to nothing
on this list I must poke in here.

Tla helped give birth to bzr.   Bzr is completely rewritten,
as far as I know.   Bzr is defined by large amounts of creative
contribution that have nothing to do with me.   But: tla
really helped lead to bzr, fairly directly.

The point is, that it does not disrespect the GNU Arch
project to consider GNU-izing and organizing around
bzr.   That is a technical question and it is a legal, economic
and ethical question about how the project will be run
in the future -- but, if I have any authority on the matter,
adopting bzr is not per se any kind of disloyalty to tla.
