Thank you for the info. It's great as a starter guide.

I am trying to follow it to set up using unofficial Emacs bzr repo at

But to be honest, it's fairly painful.

On Aug. 1 I did "bzr branch", and I recorded the result as below:

| $ time bzr clone http://bzr.notengoamigos.org/emacs/trunk/ emacs
| Branched 95203 revision(s).                                                   
| real  193m58.965s
| user  6m58.284s
| sys   1m12.954s

I just did "bzr pull" and found it's fairly slow. I did not time it.

Now I am following the above mentioned BzrForEmacsDevs guide to make a
local dev branch. Very slow.

I am using Bzr 1.17 on MacOSX.
