Hi Jason,

As you may have seen, I've been trying out the new Bzr code in savannah,
and for now it seems to work.  The lack of "bzr+ssh" access is
unfortunate, but hopefully that will get fixed at some point.  I do not
think it should stop us from switching now (just like the slow initial
checkout problem).

Regarding the address@hidden messages, I'm writing a script to do
that "outside of savannah".

So it seems all the critical pieces are in place.  We're still waiting
for comments from the mailing-list, of course.  In the mean time I'd
like to double check with you that, assuming all is well, you can make
a "final" conversion at any time.
