How does this sound:

When Bazaar 1.14 comes out (it's in release-candidate stage now), Jason
does another repo conversion, and we ask Savannah to upgrade to the new
server.  We also get the latest version of Loggerhead installed (that
may come automatically with Bazaar, not sure).

1.14 will include the end-of-line conversion feature.  (It would be
great to be able to easily test Windows development!  Of course, Emacs
itself handles the different EOL styles, but still...)

On the one hand, I don't want infrastructure to bit-rot between when we
set it up and when the project actually starts using it for real
development.  On the other hand, we need to test.  Bazaar 1.14 seems
like a good compromise point.
