The bazaar docs are not that great explaining certain things. One clear
example is their introduction for CVS users linked elsewhere and the
document you referred is just a bit better: it defines certain things
but do not explain why are they necessary.

For the reason explained on a previous post, this is a bit unrealistic.

Okay, see this:


Bazaar uses a different approach for most of the details described there
(and even for some fundamental things, as what really is tracked:
content vs files) so keep in mind that wathever you learn there is, most
likely, not applicable to bazaar in practice.
